  1. The battery provides voltage to make the non-spontaneous reaction in the cell working.The cations are attracted to cathode and the anions attracted to anode.Discharge happens and the products are formed on the anode and cathode.

  2. Electrolytic cells are composed of a vessel used to do electrolysis, containing electrolyte, usually a solution of water or other solvents capable of dissolving various ions into solution, and a cathode and anode. The electrolyte in the cell is inert unless driven by external voltage into a redox reaction with the anode and cathode. The term literally means a cell that splits up or loosens ions.
