ELECTROLYSIS & DECOMPOSITION OF WATER (H2O)<br />
Oxygen & Hydrogen Displace H2O in Test Tubes<br />
Direct current from a 9 V battery placed in a beaker of water produces 2 volumes of hydrogen at the negative terminal (r.) & 1 of oxygen at the positive (l.), shown by displacement of water in  test tubes placed over the terminals.
