Faraday's laws of electrolysis are related to:

Faraday’s laws are related to the equivalent mass of the electrolyte.


Faraday proposed two laws to explain the quantitative aspects of electrolysis, popularly known as Faraday’s laws of electrolysis, namely the first law of electrolysis and the second law of electrolysis.

Faraday’s first law of electrolysis

It states, during electrolysis, the amount of chemical reaction which occurs at any electrode under the influence of electrical energy is proportional to the quantity of electricity passed through the electrolyte.

Faraday’s second law of electrolysis

During electrolysis, when the same quantity of electricity passes through the electrolytic solution, several substances liberated are proportional to their chemical equivalent weights (Equivalent weight is defined as the ratio of the atomic mass of metal and the number of electrons required for reducing the cation).
