    used to drive an otherwise nonspontaneous reaction. A zinc strip and a copper strip will be used as electrodes. Electrodes are “devices that move electrons into or out of a solution by conduction” (“Definition”). The electrodes will be placed into a beaker of sulfuric acid. By using the copper strip as the anode and the zinc strip as the cathode, the experimenter will make the cell electrolytic in order to oxidize a copper electrode. “The anode of a device is the terminal where current flows in from

    12. The crocodile clips are attached to the copper electrodes of the experimental apparatus and the power supply is turned on. Simultaneously, the stopclock is started. The thermometer is checked every 30s. 13. After 300s the stopclock is stopped and the power supply is turned off. The negative cathode

    TUltrahigh power lithium ion capacitor using lithiated silicon oxycarbide and snake fruit rinds activated carbon† *a,b In this study, we report reports an approach to form an exceptionally high-power lithium-ion capacitor (LIC) using environmentally friendly lithiated silicone oxycarbide (SiOC) material derived from phenyl-rich silicone oil as the anode and activated carbon via KOH activation of snake fruit rinds (SKOH) as the cathode. A battery-type SiOC anode exhibited an incredibly high rate capability

    controllable welding types there is. Gas metal arc welding was originally made for weld materials such as aluminum, copper, brass, tin and lead. It was also used on steels, but shielding gases were highly expensive in the early 1900s limiting GMAW’s use on steel. It wasn’t till the mid 1900’s for GMAW to really take off. There were many different variations of arc-length, electrode size, and power supply units. Since the MIG welder is so versatile, there are many different types of things to make

    Since the mine extracts copper only, the “Copper ions leave the anode and are attracted to the cathode, where they are deposited as copper atoms. The pure copper cathode increases greatly in size, while the anode dwindles away. The impurities left behind at the anode form a sludge beneath it.” according to the BBC. With the negative electrode, the formula of how the copper would be purified would look like this Cu2+ + 2e- → Cu and with the positive electrode the formula of the purification

    Concentration of the acid The denser the solution, the slower the reaction. The slower the reaction, the less copper is deposited in the given time period. Everyone used the same amount of copper sulphate solution Current passed through the circuit If it wasn’t constant then the time, intervals wouldn’t be equal. If the current is larger, there will be more electrons flowing around the circuit and more copper will be deposited. The use of a ammeter tells you the current stayed constant Power Supply Effects

    Electrolysis of copper sulfate has great importance in the mining industry as it is a better metal extraction process compared to simply mining the ore from the rocks. This is because electrolysis refines copper so that the copper is high quality and removes the impurities of it. This is particularly important for the copper to be used in industrial processes. (1) Copper is used in industry to make electrical wiring and components due to copper being a very good conductor of electricity. Electrolysis

    the most likely metals are copper and gold because they are both comparatively easy to find as natural ores, and are both soft enough to use without forging equipment. Both metals were used by many ancient cultures for jewelry and decorative uses; copper was also used for simple tools. Copper is perhaps one of the most important elements for mankind, both due to its multiple uses and to its capacity to replace iron in many cases. Starting with making objects out of copper and continuing, as mankind
