Predict the products of electrolysis in an aqueous solution of agno3 with silver electrodes.

The products of electrolysis in an aqueous solution of AgNO3 with silver electrodes. The reaction taking place in the electrodes is given below

Reactions at the electrodes

Reaction in solution

AgNO3 ↔ Ag+ + NO3
H2O ↔ H+ + OH

Reaction at cathode

Ag+ + e→ Ag

Reaction at anode

Ag(s) + NO3 → AgNO3(aq) + e

Therefore, Ag will deposit at the cathode and dissolve at anode
