Describe the bulk preparation of dihydrogen by electrolytic method. What is the role of an electrolyte in this process



(1) Electrolysis of water containing an electrolyte (15 - 25% of acid or alkali) is the best method available to manufacture dihydrogen where electricity is cheap.
(2) The presence of an electrolyte will make the solu¬tion conducting.
(3) Plantinum electrodes are used in the process./
