Please help me with the following problem:

During the electrolysis of copper sulphate solution with copper electrodes, how many coulombs of electricity should pass to oxidise half gram atom of copper to \(\ce{Cu^{2+}}\) ions?

Please help me with a formula, hint or a solution. Every help is greatly appreciated.

Use farraday's laws of electrolysis. It states the relation between mass of ions deposited with current passed and equivalent mass of the ion. Rakhi Bhattacharyya · 1 year ago
