Unformatted text preview: 2+ is more likely to be formed at the cathode. Ca 2+ is much more difficult to reduce than water, so H 2 is more likely to be formed at the cathode. H 2 is much more difficult to oxidize than water, so Ca 2+ is more likely to be formed at the cathode. Ca 2+ is much more difficult to oxidize than water, so H 2 is more likely to be formed at the cathode. Feedback: Wrong choice! 20.45. In the electrolysis of a solution containing Ni 2+ (aq), metallic Ni(s) deposits on the cathode. Using a current of 0.150 A for 12.2 min, what mass of nickel will form? 14.970 g Ni 0.0334 g Ni 0.0449 g Ni 0.0668 g Ni Feedback: Wrong choice!...
