School Electroplating Project with penny and dime didn't work
We are doing a science project for our 9th grade project. It's on electroplating and we used a penny and a dime and it didn't work. what are we doing wrong? Also we were wondering if you could post a picture of what the experiment would look like after it's been plated. Thank you for your help.Erin B. [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]
Hi, Erin. You have given us no details of what you did yet, so we unfortunately can't tell you quite what you did wrong or failed to do right. Meanwhile please follow the instructions on our FAQ at finishing.com/faqs/plating.shtml, and get back to us if you have further questions or continuing difficulties. There is a picture of a brass key that has been electroplated with copper on that page. Good luck with it!
