ELECTROLYSIS OF WATER: HOFFMAN APPARATUS<br />
Demonstrated With Balloons<br />
Electricity is passed through a weak electrolyte solution of H2SO4(aq). H+ ions are attracted to the Cathode (red wire) where they gain electrons to form H2(g). At the Anode (blue wire) H2O molecules decompose to replace lost H+ ions releasing O2(g).
