Chlorine gas can be produced commercially
by passing an electric current through a con-
centrated solution of sodium chloride (brine).

The unbalanced equation is
NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) ---> NaOH(aq) + Cl2(g) + H2(g).

A. If the brine contains 221 g of NaCl, how
much Cl2 can be produced?
Answer in units of mol.

B. How much H2 can be produced?
Answer in units of mol
