# Fluorinated organic compounds are used as herbicides, flame retardants, and fire-extinguishing agents, among other things. A reaction such as CH3SO2F + 3 HF → CF3SO2F + 3H2 is carried out electrochemically in liquid HF as the solvent. (a) If you electrolyze 150 g of CH3SO2F, what mass of HF is required, and what mass of each product can be isolated? (b) Is H2 produced at the anode or the cathode of the electrolysis cell? (c) A typical electrolysis cell operates at 8.0 V and 250 A. How many kilowatt-hours of energy does one such cell consume in 24 hours?

a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The mass of each product in the given reaction has to be determined if electrolysis of CH3SO2F happens.

Concept introduction:

Voltaic cell or Galvanic cell:

The device to produce electricity by using chemical reactions. In these divces are redox chemical reactions are occured.

A voltaic cell converts chemical energy into electrical energy.

It consists of two half cells. Each half cell consists of a metal and a solution of a salt of metal. Two half cells are connected by salt bridge.

The chemical reaction in the half cell is an oxidation reduction (redox)reactions.

For example:

Cell diagram of voltaic or galvanic cell is as follows.

Salt bridge                        Cu(s)|Cu2+(aq)  ||  Ag+(aq)|Ag(s)____________     ___________                                       Half cell             Half cell

Explanation

The given reaction is as follows.

CH3SO2FÂ +Â 3HFÂ â†’Â CF3SO2FÂ +Â 3H2

Letâ€™s calculate the mol of each component:

Mol of HF:

molÂ ofÂ HFÂ =Â 3Â (molÂ ofÂ CH3SO2F)=3(150Â g98Â gÂ mol-1)=4.59Â mol

Mass of HF =4.59Â molÂ Ã—Â 20Â gÂ mol-1=92Â g

Mol of CF3SO2F:

MolÂ ofÂ CF3SO2FÂ =Â molÂ ofÂ CH3SO2F=150Â g98Â mol-1=1
