Electrolysis will release the elementary components of a medium

  1. Aug 18, 2004 #1
    Electrolysis will release the elementary components of a medium, albeit the process required a fare amount of energy, is there any other reasons it would be considered secondary to a more effience process? Does it have any pros?

    What more efficient process? If you want to split water into H2 and O2, it's going to require a fair bit of energy. Electrolysis can be done in the range of 60%-80% efficiency.
