Faraday's first law of electrolysis -

The mass of any substance deposited or dissolved at any electrode during electrolysis is directly propotional to the quantity of electricity passed through the solution.

- wherein

W\alpha\ Q

W = Z I t

Z = mass of electrolyte get deposited

Z = electro chemical equivalent

 

 

 

 

 

 

\\The \:\:reaction \:\:\::\:\:Ni(NO_{3})_{2}\rightarrow Ni^{2+}+2NO_{3}^{-}\\\\\:at\:\:cathode\:\:\:\::Ni^{2+}+2e^{-}\rightarrow Ni 

Ni need 2 mole of  e^{-} for 1 mole of  Ni

0.1\rightarrow \frac{0.1}{2}=0.05\:\:mole


Option 1)

0.05

Option 2)

0.20

Option 3)

0.15

Option 4)

0.10
