I'm having trouble understanding what electrolysis is. Can someone please explain the significance of this process?

Electrolysis occurs in an electrolytic cell. During this process, electrical energy is converted into chemical energy. This means that electricity would be supplied to facilitate a non-spontaneous reaction.
Electrolysis is generally used to plate certain metals, which is where gold-plated jewelry comes from. Hope this helps!

How is an electrolytic cell different from a galvanic cell?

The main difference between an electrolytic cell and a Galvanic cell is the direction in which energy is converted. For example, the electrolytic cell converts electrical to chemical energy, whereas a Galvanic cell converts chemical to electrical energy
