Mathematic relationships in electroplating?
I need some mathematical formulas about electroplating, such as the relationship between mass of plating material and the coating on the object to be plated. ASAP!

Well, the relationship you gave as an example is simply the density of a metal, Pamela. Something more unique to electroplating is expressed by Faraday's Law of Electrolysis: one Faraday of electricity (96,487 coulombs) deposits one gram equivalent weight of metal. You didn't say what grade you were in, so I don't know if you know what a gram equivalent weight is yet though. Study it; it's the most important mathematical relationship in electroplating, and maybe in all of chemistry. Good luck.
