Question

# An electric current of $$100$$ ampere is passed through a molten liquid of sodium chloride for $$5$$ hours.  Calculate the volume of chlorine gas liberated at the electrode at $$NTP$$.

Solution

## The reaction taking place at anode is :$$2Cl^{-} \rightarrow Cl_2 + 2e^{-}$$Q=I*t = 100*5*60*60 coulumbThe amount of chlorine liberated by passing 100*5*60*60 coulumb of electric charge =$$\dfrac{1}{2*96500}$$*100*5*60*60 = 9.3264 moleVolume of $$Cl_2$$ liberated at NTP = 9.3264*22.4 = 208.91L.Chemistry
