The number of electrons delivered at the cathode during electrolysis by a current of 1 ampere in 60 seconds is (charge on electron = 1.60 x10-19 C)
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.
W = Z I t
Z = mass of electrolyte get deposited
Z = electro chemical equivalent
Q=1X60C = 60C
Since 1e = 1.6X10-19c
This option is incorrect.
This option is correct.
