1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In an electrochemical cell what would happen if an electrolyte is conducting both ions and electrons? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So I know electrolytes usually conduct ions and are electronic insulators. I know the electric current that passes through the cell is related to the transport of ions and electrons. So if the electrolyte was conducting both ions and electrons, would there be no current at all? Thanks for your help.
