Electrolysis Of Water

When you pass current through water, hydrogen and oxygen will be produced. Pure water is a bad conductor of electricity as it is a covalent compound. To make water conducts electricity, there must be the presence of impurities or ions(e.g. sodium ions). This videos explains how to do electrolysis of water.
