Science Experiments

Electrolysis of copper (II) sulphate solution was all the rage this Friday amongst our scientifically inclined Year 10 students. In this science experiment, students learnt that during the electrolysis of aqueous copper sulphate using copper electrodes, copper ions are generated at the anode, that go into the copper sulphate solution used as electrolyte. Next the copper ions from the electrolyte are deposited at the cathode. Experiments are a fun way to put learning into real life, and allow students to be hands on when testing their theories.
