Artifact Posted September 17, 2021 Report Share Posted September 17, 2021 (edited) I recently conducted an experiment where I ran 21V of electricity through some artificial salt water I made. This solution was 3% Ionized salt and 97% filtered tap water. after placing the anode and the cathode into the solution it began to bubble. I understood from my research that this was the likely outcome, as the hydrogen from the water and the chloride from the salt reacted with the electricity. What I did not predict was the change in color of the solution. After 1-3 minutes the solution began to turn to a gold/yellow hue. after 5 more minutes if this I decided to remove the anode and the cathode from the bottle. I left it to rest over night. When I returned the next day some small orange debris was left at the bottom of the container. and the surface was mostly transparent. If anyone can tell me about what happened during this process it would be greatly appreciated. Edited September 17, 2021 by Artifact Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
