do the electrons flow from anode to cathode in electrolysis?
Asked by saibaba1069 | 24th Jul, 2020, 08:46: PM
Electrolysis is a redox reaction i.e. Oxidation and reduction takes place at the same time. The reaction at the cathode involves reduction of cations as they gain electrons to become neutral atoms and oxidation takes place at anode as they lose electrons to become neutral. The reaction at the anode is oxidation and that at the cathode is reduction. The electrons are supplied by the species getting oxidized. They move from anode to the cathode in the external circuit.
