Aim: To investigate how the concentration of the electrolyte affects the amount of metal deposited at the cathode while electroplating. Hypothesis: An increase in concentration of an electrolyte increases the rate of electroplating. When an electrolyte. Greater the concentration of electrolyte, greater is the concentration of metal ions. Discharging occurs faster when there is a greater concentration of ions. Therefore, an increase in concentration will lead to faster electroplating.
