KCl + Na = NaCl + K
 
Is this reaction feasible ???

Answer:
 Potassium is more electropositive than sodium. Hence, KCl can be reduced to metallic potassium by reaction with metallic sodium at 850 °C because the more volatile potassium can be removed by distillation:

KCl + Na  NaCl + K

Electrolysis used for sodium fails because of the high solubility of potassium in molten KCl.
