If the cost of electricity to produce magnesium by the electrolysis of molten magnesium chloride is $155 per ton of metal, what is the cost (in dollars) of the electricity necessary to produce (a) 10.0 tons of aluminum, (b) 30.0 tons of sodium, (c) 50.0 tons of calcium?

Problem 18.5If the cost of electricity to produce magnesium by the electrolysis of molten magnesiumchloride is $155 per ton of metal, what is the cost (in dollars) of the electricity necessaryto produce (a) 10.0 tons of aluminum, (b) 30.0 tons of sodium, (c) 50.0 tons of calcium Step by step solutionStep 1 of 4Let’s find the number of electrons in 1 ton of Magnesium metal. We know that 1 mole of Mgcontains 24.3 g of Mg or 2 moles of electrons.The cost of electricity to produce is $155 .Therefore, the cost of electricity required to produce is Or .___________________________________________________________________________
