What equation can I use to solve this kind of problem?

A metal undergoes electrolytic reduction according to ne- + Mn+ ===> M. What current (in Ampères) must be provided to deposit the metal at a rate of 1.914 mol/hr if n = 3?

  • Chem -

    1 Faraday of electricity = 96,485 coulombs and that amount of electricity will deposit 1 equivalent weight of a metal.
    The equivalent weight = molar mass/change in electrons (in this case delta n = 3).
    Coulombs = amperes x seconds
