In experiment C4.4.6.1, a thin layer of copper is applied to a metal object (e.g. a key or a nail) by means of galvanisation. In so doing, the object is wired as a cathode and immersed in a copper sulfate solution. A copper plate serves as the anode, which is also immersed in the copper sulfate solution. The process is started by applying a direct current source (3V).
