Solution

## Faraday's First law of electrolysisMichael Faraday established Faraday's law of electrolysis.According to Faraday's First Law of Electrolysis, the chemical deposition caused by the flow of current through an electrolyte is proportionate to the amount of electricity passing through it.The amount of electricity needed to release one gram-equivalent of any material at any electrode is called a faraday, and it passes through an electrolyte.Faraday's constant is equal to $96485\mathrm{C}{\mathrm{mol}}^{-1}$.Formula of Faraday's first law $m\propto Q\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m=ZQ\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}m=ZIt$ $m$ is the mass of the ions formed or reacted.$Q$ is the electric current.$Z$ is the electrochemical equivalent mass of one-coulomb charge.is the current.is the timeWhen one coulomb equals one electrochemical equivalent mass of a material, one equivalent of electrons flowing per second equals $96485$ equivalents mass.
