In this activity, learners electrically plate zinc onto brass objects. They connect a brass object to a black wire on the negative pole of a 6 Volt battery, and a piece of zinc to a red wire on the positive pole. Then, learners dip both objects into a tub of zinc sulfate (ZnSO4) solution. After 45 seconds, learners can observe that the brass object is plated with zinc. This process is known as electroplating. Zinc ions (positively charged zinc atoms) in the solution are attracted to the negative pole of the battery, and when the zinc ions hit the brass object they gain electrons and attach to the object, "plating" it as a zinc coating. Background info is provided on further uses for electroplating. For safety reasons, this activity works best as a demonstration for younger audiences.
