ELECTROLYSIS: COPPER SULFATE & SILVER NITRATE<br />
Copper and Silver Plating Compared<br />
Copper sulfate solution  breaks into copper ions (Cu2+) and sulfate ions (SO42-). When electric current flows the solution Cu2+ bonds with negatively charged metal. A similar bond occurs in electrolyzed silver nitrate solution, silver ions bond to metal.
