Expert Answer:

In case of alternating current, the direction of current keeps changinf every 1/100th of a second.Due to changing direction of the current, the metallic ions in the electrolyte keeps shunting between the electrodes that keeps changing polarity. Hence AC current cannot be used in electroplating.
