A simple activity to show how copper can be obtained from a 0.1M Copper Sulphate solution.
Graphite elctrodes are used.
Key Words (not all are used in the worksheet but I did write them up on the board) :
Electrodes, Anode, Cathode, Electrolysis, Electrolyte, Ion.
The worksheet was designed as a More… starter for students working at a NC level 4.
I added the video from YouTube. It is silent but has clear annotations.
