8.27 Predict the products of electrolysis in each of the following:

(iii) A dilute solution of $H_{2}SO_{4}$ with platinum electrodes

Views

given sulphuric acid is dilute.

ionize into    $H_{2}SO_{4}\rightarrow 2H^{+}+ SO_{4}^{2-}$

At cathode $H^{+}+e^{-}\rightarrow 1/2H_{2}(g)$

At anode, There will be -(liberation of oxygen gas)

$H_{2}O\rightarrow 1/2O_{2}+4H^{+}+4e^{-}$
