Process is carried out in an electrolytic cell, an apparatus consisting of positive and negative electrode.
Electric current enters through negatively charged electrode, Components of the solution gains electron (reduced) at this electrode and Components of the solution also travel to the anode and releases electrons (oxidation).
 
Uses-
