Question

What happens when current is passed into the solution of an electrolyte?
  1. Anions move towards anode and cations towards cathode
  2. In some cases, anions move to cathode and cations stay in the solution
  3. Anions move towards cathode and cations towards anode
  4. No movement of ions take place


Solution

The correct option is A Anions move towards anode and cations towards cathode
When current is passed through an electrolyte, it splits into its constituent ions, the positively charged cations and the negatively charged anions. Due to strong electromotive force, the anions move towards the anode and the cations move towards the cathode.
