In the industrial "chlor-alkali" process, pure chlorine and sodium hydroxide are produced by electrolyzing brine, essentially an aqueous solution of sodium chloride. Suppose a current of 920. A is passed through an aqueous solution of NaCl for 61.0 seconds. Calculate the mass of pure chlorine produced. Be sure your answer has a unit symbol and the correct number of significant digits.
