    Could someone please give me a link explaining electrolysis, things like why the Anode and cathode should be of specific things Eg: Platinum Anode and a steel Cathode and both steel.

    How to determine the products afterwards.

    Thank you.

    The composition of the electrodes depends on the reaction involved, or the purpose (e.g. electroplating). Platinum is often used because it is not very reactive and so won't dissolve.
