Example Question #1 : Other Electrochemistry Concepts
A current is passed through a silver ion solution. How much silver is deposited after 10 minutes?
First we need to convert minutes to seconds (10min=600s), and knowing that , we can calculate the amount of silver deposited as follows:
If we follow the units carefully, we see that all of the units cancel out to give us a value in grams of silver, which is what we are looking for.
