Electrolytic Cell: Plating copper on copper

Electrolytic Cell: two copper electrodes in 1.0 M CuSO4(aq) are connected to a D.C. Power Supply. When current is applied to the electrolysis cell copper(II) ions iare reduced to copper atoms at the cathode and copper atoms are oxidized to coppere(II) ions at the anode. The time to plate the metal is recorded along with the current (amps).
