Will the material in a cathode be carried to the anode?

  1. Jul 12, 2014 #1
    If I were to strike an arc between a copper cathode and a tungsten anode would copper be deposited on the anode? If so how could I calculate deposition rate? I know this works in electroplating but will it work through air or another gas?

    Cool this answered one of my questions, but how would I calculate deposition rate?
