Electrolysis - using an electrical current (direct current) to cause a reaction.
During Electrolysis, a current is passed through an electrolyte (Liquid/solution that can conduct electricity).
It involves a cathode (negative electrode) and anode (positive electrode)
Make sure to remember that the cations (positive ions) will be attracted to the cathode so therefore reduced and anions (negative ions) will be attracted to the anode so therefore oxidised.
