  • Electrolysis
    • When you pass an electric current through an ionic substance
      • Has to be molten or in a solution.
      • 'Splitting up with electricity'
    • 'Cat'ions are 'pussy'tive and go to the negative cathode (Pb+)
      • The ions gain electrons to form elements.
      • This is called REDUCTION
      • Positive ions move towards the negative electrode (cathode).
    • Anions are  negative and go to the positive anode (Br-)
      • Negative ions move towards the positive electrode (anode).
      • The ions lose electrons to form elements.
      • This is called OXIDATION
    • OIL RIG Oxidation Is Loss, Reduction Is Gain
