Melissa,
You have most likely handed in your assignment already, but I will answer the question anyway. I assume you mean two "end uses" for electroplating.
1) Plating on plastics for automobile trim and emblems.
2) Plating copper, tin, tin-lead, nickel and gold on printed circuit boards that are used in telecommunications, medical equipment, computers, and many other electronic devices. Good Luck!
