Question

Write equations for the reactions taking place at the two electrodes (mentioning clearly the name of the electrode) during the electrolysis of Acidified copper sulphate solution with copper electrodes

Solution

Electrodes: Cathode: Copper

Anode: Platinum

Reaction at the cathode: `Cu^(2+) + 2e^(-) -> Cu`

Reaction at andde: `4OH^(-) - 4e^(-) -> 4OH`

                            `2OH + 2OH -> 2H_2O + O_2`

 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
