Nickel Plating

Students were taught chemistry in a new lecture theatre in the physical sciences building today.
Anthony Armstrong Academy Chemistry teacher: teaching rates of reaction and electrochemistry
The students performed an electrolysis experiment later in the lesson. The students plated copper coins with nickel.


Copper coins : for those who remember

Nickel II ions (green in solution) were reduced to Nickel
by electricity forming a Nickel coating (silver looking) on the copper coins.
