Q. 4

An electrolysis experiment is stopped and the battery terminals are reversed.
A. The electrolysis will stop.

B. The rate of liberation of material at the electrodes will increase.

C. The rate of liberation of material will remain the same

D. Heat will be produced at a greater rate.

Answer :

|

An electrolytic cell is an electrochemical cell that drives a non-spontaneous redox reaction through the application of electrical energy through the electrodes


Electrolytic cells have both the electrodes of the same material.


So, on reversing the terminals of the battery, the direction of the charge flow reverses, but the rate of the electrolysis will remain constant.
