Metal M is sodium,Na.Electrolysis mehod is used for resuction of molten metal chloride by process of electrolysis.The process has been explained below:
The reactions at each electrode are called half equations.
The half equations are written so that the same number of electrons
occur in each equation.
2Na+ + 2e- 2Na (sodium metal at the (-)cathode).
2Cl- - 2e- Cl2 (chlorine gas at the (+)anode).
The overall reaction is
2Na+Cl-(l) 2Na(s) + Cl2(g)
