Deduction of Faraday's Laws of Electrolysis
Suppose a charge Q is passed through an electrolyte during electrolysis and the mass liberated/deposited on the cathode is m.
m = ZQ
Equation (i) is the fundamental equation of electrolysis and contains Faraday's two laws of electrolysis.
(1) It is clear from equation (i) that :
m ∝ Q .............Faraday's first law
(2) If the same charge is passed (i.e. Q is constant) through different electrolytes during electrolysis, then, m ∝ E .........Faraday 's second law
