"The idea prevails generally, that when an electric current is passed through a copper sulphate solution, the water will be electrolysed [sic] when the difference of potential between the electrodes reaches about one and one-half volts. The object of the experiments detailed below was to determine whether or not the density of the solution has any effect on the electrolysis of the water, and if any such existed, to find out if there was any relation between them" – p. [1].
