Remember that voltaic cells use redox reactions to produce electrical currents.
The converse is also possible in electrolytic cells, where electrical energy is used to proceed a nonspontaneous redox reaction in a process called electrolysis.
What indicates a nonspontaneous reaction?
How do the electrodes in electrolytic cells differ from those in voltaic cells?

Applications of Electrolysis
What is the goal of the electrolysis of water and of molten salts? What is produced?
Why does the electrolysis of brine not yield the same results as the electrolysis of molten salt?
Electroplating is a process of coating metals through electrolysis. Explain how electroplating works.
Why is electroplating used in industry?
