Agitation of an electrolyte brings more of the active species to the electrodes, where a reduction or oxidation process takes place, and leads to improved rate of reaction. Agitation may be by forced air or by mechanical stirring or controlled flow, or by ultrasonic effects. The main purposes of agitating the electrolyte are to improve the rate of reaction, to get reproducible values and to relieve adsorbed hydrogen or oxygen if any, on the surface of the electrodes. Adsorption of gases can lead to pitting or holes in the deposit. It was found that agitation improved the rate of nickel deposition and affects to some extent the phosphorous content of the deposit
