i have a practical assesment i need to complete at school and i come across this problem....i am to electroplate a 20 cent coin with a layer copper, i have all the experiment setup but i'm a bit confused abit about the faraday formula...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

one of the calculations i need to work out is theTHEORETICALamount of copper that is plated out.......

do i work out this answer via the faraday formula?, cause i am confused...

faraday's forumla is [no. moles electrons = (current x time)/96500)]...correct me if i'm wrong......

i cannot see how i can work out the theoretical amount that should be plated out from the copper ......please help me. It only talks about the amount of electrons.......or does it have something to do with Cu --> Cu2+ + 2e-

please help me out here, because this assesment is due soon, and i need to have it all clear (not a open book thing)lol .......
