Chemical Effect of Current


Theory of Electrolysis

The phenomenon of the passage of the electric current through liquids and their decomposition into ions as a result of it is called the chemical effect of electric current. This note provides us an information on theory of electrolysis.

Faradays Laws of Electrolysis

According to Faraday's first law of electrolysis, the mass of a substance liberated or deposited on an electrode during electrolysis is directly proportional to the quantity of electric charge passed through the electrolyte.

Faraday’s Constant and Application of Electrolysis

Faraday’s constant is defined as the ratio between chemical equivalents of a substance to its electrochemical equivalent. This note provides us an information on Faraday’s constant and application of electrolysis.
