dcstegg228 Posted March 17, 2006 Share Posted March 17, 2006 i read this on a website "A regulated DC voltage source is preferable to ordinary batteries. Use a supply with built-in current limiting- this is a feature of almost any decent power supply, but double-check just to be safe. You can start the source out at its lowest voltage setting and gradually increase the voltage until a steady, controlled electrolysis reaction is taking place. Electrolysis can force many chemical reactions to go against their "normal" (spontaneous) direction; this will occur when a certain electric potential (i.e., applied voltage) is reached. For example, an electric current can cause Pb++ ions in water to form PbO2 (solid) and H+ (aq.), a reaction which normally proceeds the other way." i have no clue whjat either of theese are but i think i made pb02 and h+ , because there is a clear solid like stuff floating around in the container i made it in.
