The electrical resistance of a particular electrolytic cell is 5.00 Ohms. A potential difference of 50.0 volts is applied across the cell. If the cell is a copper cell, how much time will be required for 63.54 grams of copper to be deposited on the negative electrode? (Assume the valence of copper is +2).
