A risk assessment is where you write down the potential risks and hazards that could occur in an experiment. I'm guessing this CPAC is electrolysis using a voltmeter so one obvious risk is electricity hazard as liquids could spill and cause a potential hazard i.e. electric shock. You would identify the risk state the potential hazard and then write what you will do in your experiment to minimise the risk e.g. keep voltmeter at a specific distance away from any source of liquids.
Other risks include trip hazards like chairs or bags so making sure those are put away/tucked under the desk before starting etc.
So, 1) State the risk 2) State the hazard(s) 3) State how you are going to minimise the risk of hazards occuring. Do this for every risk.
