34 of 80
What is a reversible reaction?
A reversible reaction is a reaction where the reactants form products, which react together to give the reactants back.

What happens at the electrodes?
Negatives ions are oxidised while positive ions are produced.
72 of 80
What happens if electrolysis occurs during water?
The less reactive element between hydrogen (water) and the metal is produced at the negative electrode. At the positive electrode we get O2 gas.
