Electrolytes are substances that conduct electricity when they are dissolved in a solvent.

Electrolysis experiments are frequently done, in which an anode (positive) and cathode (negative) are played into the electrolyte.

The negative ions called anions move towards the anode which is positively charged and the positive ions called cations move towards the cathode which is negatively charged.
