This paper is a re-publication of the the 2nd William Blum Lecture, presented at the 47th AES Annual Convention in Los Angeles by Dr. A. Kenneth Graham, 1959 AES Scientific Achievement Award recipient. While Faraday's Law had long been applied to electrodeposition processes, Dr. Graham took it a step further, considering its usage in the electrocleaning of various metal substrates in terms of electrical charge passed during the cleaning operation.
