Question

Which of the following statements are correct?

(i) The electrolysis of aqueous NaCl produces hydrogen gas at the cathode and chlorine gas at the anode

Solution

The correct option is D All are correct
For aqueous NaCl solution reactions
At Anode :
2ClCl2+2e
At Cathode : 2H2O+2eH2+2OH

For aqueous CuSO4 solution
At Anode : Cu (s) → Cu⁺²(aq) + 2 e⁻
At cathode : Cu⁺²(aq) + 2 e⁻ → Cu (s)

For aqueous solution of H2SO4 simple electrolysis of water takes place.
At Anode : 2H2OO2+4H++4e
At Cathode : 2H2O+2eH2+2OH
