Efficiency of electrolysis (in joules).

The amount of product produced by electrolysis is limited by Faraday's law. Therefore, as I understand it, the amount of product produced depends on the amps rather than on the volts (although the minimum voltage for a given reaction plus overvoltage must be met). For example, lets say you have a reaction that requires at
