Faraday’s Laws of Electrolysis Faraday’s Laws of Electrolysis give the relationship between the amount of material liberated at the electrode and the amount of electric energy that is passed through the electrolyte. First Law of Electrolysis : It states that the amount of any substance that is liberated at an electrode during electrolysis is

Unformatted text preview: directly proportional to the quantity of electricity passed through the electrolyte. W ∝ Q ∴ Q = I × t ∴ W ∝ I × t Therefore, W = Z × I × t Where W = Weight of substance deposited or liberated at the electrode Z = is the constant (electrochemical equivalent) I = current strength in ampere t = time in second...
