Observe the diagram of the electrolytic cell (A aqueous solution of molten salt with a power supply). The molten salt is lithium flouride.
Write the half reaction occuring at the cathode, following the usual style guide and making sure to balance electrons.

  1. At anode(+)electrode.
    2F^- ==> F2
    + 2e
    At the cathode (-) electrode
    2Li^+ + 2e ==> 2Li

    I don't have any idea what the "usual" style guide is.
