Oxygen is produced at the positive electrode
Write a balanced half equation for the process at the positive electrode ​


  1. Answer:

    See Explanation


    In electrolysis, a solution called the electrolyte is decomposed by the passage of direct current through it.

    The points through which current enters and leaves the electrolyte are called electrodes. In electrolysis, oxidation occurs at the anode and reduction occurs at the cathode.

    In the electrolysis of water; at the anode oxygen is produced as follows;

    4OH^-(aq) —–> 2H2O(l) + O2(g) + 4e
