Expert Answer:

Electrolysis: It is the process of decomposition of a chemical compound in aqueous solutions or in a molten state, accompanied by a chemical change using direct current.


It is a process in which a thin film of a metal, such as gold, silver, nickel etc., gets deposited on another metallic article with the help of electricity.
