Electrolytic cells 1: electroplating

CCR - Jun 2005  Copper cathode production at CCR refinery in CanadaThis 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.
