What if the two poles are attached to wafers, flat disks that creates more surface area for the oxygen and hydrogen atoms to collect on?

What if-?

It may even be possible to enhance the electrolysis reaction by introducing sound frequencies in the water. Trying very low frequencies to high frequencies.

You may trying to re-invent the wheel. Wikipedia on electrolysis of water. Just a point, there's no shortage of energy on Earth. The problem is storage. Hydrogen is costly to store.

Water is a great storage medium for hydrogen and oxygen.

Electrolysis splits the water molecule into two (2) hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.

When you recombine these atoms a great deal of heat is given off and the result is the same water you started with.

The problem statement is about the experiment of chemistry conducted by the experimentalist to observe and record specific chemical reactions during that reaction. He states the investigation be performed on the hydrogen gas, which turns to gold/ yellow hue upon when the response takes place. After experimenting, he threw the anode and cathode out of the solution and left the solution overnight to settle down. The next day the solution had an orange tan in it, which was not the experiment's outcome. He asks the community to help him determine what happened after the investigation.
The discussion on the topic at hand asks the person to list the electrode he used because the orange tan of the solution feels more like rust, which could be due to the iron electrodes. After all, iron electrodes quickly get rusted. The discussion on this topic further unfolds certain mysteries using the copper electrode. This time, instead of the yellow tan, the blue-green powder might be sodium hydroxide, which might be in a very impure form.
