Electrolysis And Electrolytic Cell Test! Quiz

Do you know anything about Electrolysis and Electrolytic cells? Do you think you can pass this quiz? An electrolytic cell utilizes electrical energy to drive a non- spontaneous redox reaction. The cell is often used to decompose chemical compounds in a process called electrolysis. It is a technique that uses a direct electric current. Take this quiz and learn more about electrolysis and electrolytic cells.
