Half Electrolysis

  1. Feb 18, 2016 #1
    CONSTRUCTION:
    -In the following figure a metal plate is immersed in a Trough of salt water, the wire hooked to plate is attached to a choke coil and the other end of choke coil is Grounded deep inside soil.
    -A battery is shorted via this choke and a SPST switch to flow the current via choke
    WORKING:
    - when the SPST is open the large voltage created by choke will pass current from earth into/away to the salt water trough.
    - will this induce either the cathode or anode reaction to take place singly ?
