Amperometry, Coulometry, Aquametry I. Current = charge/unit time. Charge = integral of currents. Amperometry: current proportional to instantaneous flux of analyte to electrode. Coulometry: charge proportional to total amount of analyte. Aquametry: coulometry used to quantify water (Karl Fischer titration). II. If current constant, Q = i*t. Faraday constant = ratio of charge (in Coulombs) to moles = 96485.383. III. Ohmic drop, concentration polarization, and overpotential mean E applied > E Nernst . Use of 3 electrode systems to compensate for overpotential. Electrolysis never 100% complete (would require infinite potential and time). So choose % completion desired. IV. Determination of water in grain: near-infrared absorption spectrometry OR Karl Fischer titration.
