What would happen in this electrolytic cell?

  1. Jul 24, 2008 #1
    What happens when you connect two silver wires immersed in 0.1M HCl to the poles of a 1.5 V battery and passing current for some time? What are the possible reactions that can occur at the anode and cathode? Which reactions will be more favorable? Can silver chloride form at either electrode? Why or why not?

    Thank you
