# Solution - 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 - Electrolysis - Substances Containing Both Molecules and Ions

#### 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?
