what happens when electric current is passed through tap water?
plzzz... give me the answeer quickly. as i have a test
For more details, kindly refer to the following link
tap water has some dissolved salts in it . salts ae good electrolytes . these salts hepl tap water to become a conductor of electricity. so , when electric current is passed thruough tap water the ions conduct electricity and water dissociates into H+ and O2- ions. this process is called electrolyysis of water.
When electric current is passed through water , water dissociates into H+ and O2- as the valency of elements was exchanged in order to form H2O andthe described process is called as electrolysis of water. The process of electrolysis is used to break down a compound into parts...
Did u understand????? :-)
