  • Electrolysis- part 1
    • When ionic substances are molten or dissolved in water, the ions are free to move
    • Electrolysis is the breaking down of an ionic compound, making elements, using electricity
    • During electrolysis, ions gain or lose electrons at the electrodes forming neutral atoms or molecules
    • Positively charged ions move to the negative electrode
      • Negatively charged ions move to the positive electrode
