The present study is aiming to reveal the origins and the dynamics of the polarographic wave, and to reach the mathematic expression of the function characterizing it. It is starting with the recently obtained mathematic expressions of the electric potential of the interface region <8-11>, and of the intensity of the interfacial current <8,12>. Consequently, there are brought into attention the origins and the phenomenological significance of the main characteristics of the polarographic wave for the analytical chemistry. The conclusions are fully confirmed by the electro-analytical experiments involving the polarographic analysis. The study is part of a larger scientific effort of the authors toward clarifying some important aspects pertaining the origin and the dynamics of the electric interfacial phenomena <8-12>.
