Electrolysis

Postby Connor Ho 1B » Wed Mar 11, 2020 10:47 pm

Does anyone know of a real-life example of electrolysis? Where does electrolysis take place in daily life?

I pulled this from Google: "Electrolysis is used extensively in metallurgical processes, such as in extraction (electrowinning) or purification (electrorefining) of metals from ores or compounds and in deposition of metals from solution (electroplating)." It appears that it's used for getting solid metal from an aqueous solution when that reduction reaction is not favorable.

How does this concept apply to solving problems in this class? Is there some way to account for this process?
