Electrode Potential and Electrolysis

Electrode Potential and Electrolysis: When an electrolyte is dissolved in water or melted and an electric current is passed through it, the Cations (positive ions) move towards the cathode and Anions (negative ions) towards the anode. The formation of products at the respective electrodes is due to oxidation (loss of electrons) at the Anode and reduction …
