## Homework Statement

If 3.00 10-3 kg of gold is deposited on the negative electrode of an electrolytic cell in a period of 2.62 h, what is the current in the cell during that period? Assume the gold ions carry one elementary unit of positive charge.

## Homework Equations

delta Q/delta T

n*q*vd*A: n = moles, q=charge, vd=drift speed and A= cross sectional area of conductor.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm having a bit trouble starting this because I think we have to derive an equation since we only have mass and the time, and nothing else given. I tried to put the two equations posted together, but it did not look right nor make sense. Can someone give a hint on how to start this?
