Hi Friend , I am Deepak Jangra

there is a answer of your answer ....

hope it really helps you

Oh!well............there are many advantages of electroplating but some are as follows:
1)It saves the metal from corrosion and rusting.
2)It makes the metal durable and lustrous.

Electroplating is a process where metal ions are moved using an electric field to coat an electrode. This process is primarily used to change properties of the surface of an object. Some disadvantages of electroplating might be that its time consuming, it may not be uniform, and the coating may be brittle.
