    was first used in New York in 1890. When a condemned man is scheduled to be executed, he is led into the death chamber and strapped to the point of immobility into a reinforced chair with belts crossing his chest, groin, legs, and arms. Two copper electrodes, dipped in brine or treated with Eletro-Creme to increase conductivity, are attached to him, one to his leg and the other to his head. The first jolt, between five-hundred and two-thousand volts depending on the size of the prisoner, is given

  • The Factors that Affect the Mass of Copper

    4314 Words  | 9 Pages

    The Factors that Affect the Mass of Copper Background Information ====================== Electrolysis is the decomposition of a molten or aqueous compound by electricity. Electrolysis occurs only in liquids called electrolytes. Electrolytes are compounds, which conduct electricity when molten or dissolved in water, but not when they are in a solid state as the oppositely charged ions are held together by strong ionic bonds in a giant lattice and this means electricity cannot pass through

    circuit, as below: z When a pair of electrodes as above is placed in an ionized solution (Electrolyte) and there is a current flowing between them, the positive ions move toward the negative electrode - cathode and the negative ions move towards the positive electrode - anode. The ions that move towards the cathode are called "cations" and the ions that move toward the anode are called "anions". When the ions reach their respective electrodes, they gain or lose electrons and are transformed
