how can you electroplate an iron spoon with copper? Explain with the help of a circuit diagram.

We should connect the  iron spoon to the cathode and the copper item to the anode of a battery. Then we should dip them in CuSO4 solution. When electric current is passed through the circuit, CuSO4 dissociates into Cu+ ion and SO4- ion. The Cu+ ions get deposited on the iron spoon and the copper particles from the anode replace the Cu+ ions in the solution.
