FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate for the time it would take to produce 100 g of titanium metal using 2 A of current at a potential of 5V.


The solution is made up of TiCl4(aq) and it will break up in the solution:

TiCl4(aq) → Ti4+(aq) + 4 Cl-(aq)


Ti4+ needs to gain 4 electrons to become Ti(s):

Ti4+(aq) + 4 e- → Ti(s)


We can now calculate the time it will take it would take to produce 100 g of titanium metal:
