Electrolysis of Aqueous NaCl
This technology is used to generate chlorine, hydrogen and alkalies.
It is called the chlor-alkali industry and is considered a basic industry. A Basic
Industry provides chemicals that other industries use for their raw materi
Voltaic Cell is a fancy term for a battery.
Any spontaneous redox reaction can serve as a source of energy in a voltaic cell. In
order to produce a useful current, one must design the cell so that the oxidation and
reduction half cells
The electrolysis of molten lead II bromide produces lead at
the cathode and bromine at the anode. A current of 10 amps is allowed to flow
through molten lead bromide for 5 hours.
What mass of lead is deposited at the cathode?

Electrolysis of Aqueous Salt Solutions
In aqueous solutions of any salt there will be at least two possible reactions at each
electrode. The reaction that takes place at each electrode will ALWAYS be the one
that takes the LEAST energy.
This will always b
