Electrolysis of salt water My first summary This is the heading of my first literary article. what occurs during electrolysis is that an ionic compound dissolves in an appropriate solvent to create a solution that have ions in it, an electrical current is applied between a cathode electrode and anode electrode. Each of the ions attract an opposite charge from each other, which means that the cathode attracts the anodes. The energy that is needed for the electrodes to combine is provided by an electrical power supply. It states that water is made up of two pure substances which are hydrogen and oxygen. This means it is a pure, free of salts solution which makes it a poor conductor of electricity. By adding table salt to the distilled solution makes it more concentration which makes is an electrolyte solution, so that it can conduct electricity. Some electrolyte solutions are a substance that produces an electrically conducting solution when dissolved in a polar system, such as water. Many ions like salt water can conduct electricity when its dissolves in water, many ionic solutions need two or more ions that are connected by an electrical attraction. The ions are that positively charge is called cations and negatively charge is called anion. the water solution includes table salt which is sodium which is Na and chloride which is Cl, and water that is a very small V shaped molecule and the chemical formula is H2O. Then the atoms in this solution consist of a positive
