the process of breaking down a substance using electricity

if you pass an electric current through an ionic substance thats molten/in a solution the ions in the liquid/solution will move towards the electrodes where they react and cause the ionic substance to decompose

electrolyte is a liquid that conduct electricity

it is needed in electrolysis because it has free ions that can conduct electricity

electrolysis involves an electrolyte and 2 electrodes
