5 facts about electroplating...

1- electroyolisis is used to elecroplate objects.

2- it is useful for coating a chaper metal with a more expensive one. e.g.copper,silver.

3- the negetive electrode should be the object that is elctroplated. (cheap)

4- the positive elctrode shoudl be the metal that you want to coat the metal with. (expensive)

5- the electroylte should be a soulotion of the coating metal, such as its metal nitrate or sulphate.
