  1. The sodium chloride initially converts into Na+ and Cl- ions upon being added to water.

    These Cl- ions undergo electrolysis to form chlorine.

    However, the mass of chlorine shall remain constant throughout the process, and so the mass of Chlorine produced at the end is the same as the mass of Cl in the original sodium chloride.

    Can you figure out how much mass of Cl is in 29.25g of NaCl?
