The considered problem is a part of the general problem of fluctuation and noise studies of chemical current sources. The measurements were made on a chain of two identical elements, providing mutual compensation of the constant component. The recorded noise signal covered a range from 10 Hz to 1200 Hz. It was found that the analyzed signals are stationary Gaussian random noise with a nearly uniform spectrum. It is shown that the studied noises can be identified as Johnson noises arising from the resistive impedance of the chemical current source. The work carried out can be useful both for fundamental research of fluctuation-noise phenomena and for applied purposes of diagnostics of chemical current sources.
