As u know According to Faraday's 1st law if electrolysis….

W=Z×q or W=Z×I×t

We know Z ( electrochemical equivalent):—

Z= Equivalent weight / Faraday const. (F)

So, Equivalent wt of CuSO4 = molecular mass of CuSO4 valency.

Z= 159/2 = 79.5

Now we r given with,

W= 50g

I=1A

t=???

So put values in Formula and time will be founded

According to faraday 1st law of electrolysis
W=zit
W=50g
Molecular mass of cuso4 solution is 179
N factor 2
Z=159÷2=79.5
W=ZIt
50=79.5×1×t
T~0.63 ×3600(in sec)
T~21 hrs
