Faraday's Law of Electrolysis

  1. Jan 14, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    According to the Faraday's law of electrolysis, does the mass given as a result indicate the total difference of the masses of both the anode or cathode, or just one electrode?
    Thank you

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    In the expression for Faraday's law of electrolysis, m is the mass of the substance altered at an electrode, not both electrodes. Pick one, not both.

    Thanks, I'll consider that.
