# Predict the products of electrolysis in each of the following An aqueous solution AgNO3 with platinum electrodes

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

(ii) An aqueous solution $AgNO_{3}$ with platinum electrodes

Views

(ii) since platinum$(Pt)$ electrode cannot easily oxidize. So at the anode  $H_{2}O$  will oxidize and liberate oxygen and at cathode  $Ag$ will be deposited.

At cathode- $Ag^{+}+e^{+}\rightarrow Ag$

At anode-  $H_{2}O\rightarrow O_{2}+4H^{+} +4e^{-}$
