I put some soder on the negitive termanal and a piece of steel on the other postive termainal. this was in a salt water solution. when i checked back in a hour white stuff deposited on the soder and a grey spongy looking stuff depostied on the steel. i whiped a little of the stuff of the steel and soder and found that the soder had been reduced in size an the steel just turned a dull grey. what happed? also sence soder is a lead and tin mixture i understand that it might not work to as a plateing. so, how would I plate steel with zinc then copper?\ thanks -kyle p.s. I have knowlege of oxidation redution reations.
