Therefore, removing oxygen from acid solutions will often make these solutions less corrosive. If a piece of mild steel is placed in a solution of hydrochloric acid, a vigorous formation of hydrogen bubbles is observed. Under such conditions, the metal corrodes very quickly. The dissolution of the metal occurs only at anodic surfaces. 6 Electrochemical reactions occurring during the corrosion of zinc in aerated hydrochloric acid. come from the entire surface of the metal rather than at welldefined cathodic areas (Fig.

Faraday’s empirical laws of electrolysis relate the current of an electrochemical reaction to the number of moles of the element being reacted and the number of moles of electrons involved. Supposing that the charge required for such reaction was one electron per molecule, as is the case for the plating or the corrosion attack of silver described respectively in Eqs. 022 × 1023). The charge carried by 1 mol of electrons is known as 1 faraday (F). 6 × 10−19 coulomb (C). Multiplying the electronic charge by the Avogadro number means that 1 F equals 96,485 C/(mol of electrons).

For a galvanic cell, such as the Daniell cell shown previously in Chap. 3, a positive cell voltage will be obtained if the difference is taken in the way described in Eq. 3) and illustrated in Fig. 1. 3) * The Faraday constant is 96 485 C/ mol. 49 Copyright © 2008 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.
