The Second Electrolyte Wedge problem studies diffusion-reaction-conduction processes associated with current production in a porous electrode. Two rate-determining reaction steps occur in this formulation - one in the electrolyte wedge and one at the electrolyte-solid interface. Existence and uniqueness of solutions to this problem are proven, and thus current density is proven to be finite. Numerical and asymptotic analysis are completed and expressions for the current density and total current produced by the electrolyte are given.
