Electroplating

Q. Metal plating is done by passing current through a metal solution. For example, an item can become gold plated by attaching the item to a power source and submerging it into a Au^3+ solution. The item itself serves as the cathode, at which the Au^3+ ions are reduced to Au(s). A piece of solid gold is used as the anode and is also connected to the power source, thus completing the circuit. What mass of gold is produced when 17.1 A of current are passed through a gold solution for 42.0 min? Express your answer with the appropriate units.

Electroplating

Q. Galvanized nails are iron nails that have been plated with zinc to prevent rusting. The relevant reaction is Zn^2+(aq) + 2e^- → Zn(s) For a large batch of nails, a manufacture needs to plate a total zinc mass of 2.10 kg on the surface to get adequate coverage. Identify the anode and cathode when plating an iron nail with zinc.
