Explain the process of electroplating...!!!
In the most simplest terms, the metal to be plated will have a negative charge, while the material that you plate it with will have a positive charge and it will be attracted to the negative through an electrical current and thus set. For example, sterling silver (negative) and gold (positive) plus an electrical current = gold plated silver. There is an exact science to this, how to render a metal negative or positive
Electroplating is a plating process in which metal ions in a solution are moved by an electric field to coat an electrode. The process uses electricalcurrent to reduce cations of a desired material from a solution and coat a conductive object with a thin layer of the material, such as a metal. Electroplating is primarily used for depositing a layer of material to bestow a desired property (e.g., abrasion and wear resistance, corrosion protection,lubricity, aesthetic qualities, etc.) to a surface that otherwise lacks that property. Another application uses electroplating to build up thickness on undersized parts.
first the spoon is connected to the negative terminal of a battery and it becomes the negative electrode or he cathode. A bar of silver is attached to the positive terminal and it becomes anode ad when electric current is passed through it and the silver ions in the water are attracted to the negative (cathode) spoon and stick to it...
