This program contrasts energy conversions in electrolytic and galvanic cells, then explores electroplating applications of electrolytic cells – including copper electro-refining – and the concept of competition at electrodes. The related process of anodising is outlined. Faraday’s laws of electrolysis are explained, then applied to practical electroplating calculations.
