I'm currently experimenting with copper coating using electrolysis. I'm using copper wire from my home, like the one you use for grounding. I want to electrolysis with longer copper wire (say 5 times the height of the container) to find out if the process will be shortened. My question here is about how I should arrange the wires in the container and if one arrangement has different effect than the other.
Here is what I have in mind:
- all horizontal wires connecting to one vertical wire(this will be 5 separate pieces same length connected to the vertical wire)
- bent like snake up and down (in one piece)
Do you think these two arrangements would work the same or differently?
