In an electrochemical cell operating under reversible conditions the electrical work obtained is exactly equal to the free energy change. ... Electrolysis involves bringing about such chemical changes at the electrodes at the expense of electrical energy. ... The decomposition potential of an electrolyte is approximately equal to the emf of the galvanic cell consisting of the products of electrolysis liberated atanbsp;...
