There is 1 mole of electrons = 96500C and Ca = 40 Ca2+ + 2e --->Ca Base on the formula above it means that there are 2 moles of electrons to produce 1 mole of calcium. 96500C x 2 = 193000C 193000C electricity produce 40g Calcium Coulombs = Amps x seconds (28.70A for 12 hours) = 28.70A x 12 x 60 x 60 C = 1 239 840 C This amount of electricity will produce =1239840 / 193000 x 40g Calcium = 6.42 x 40 g Calcium = 256.96 g So there will be 256.96g of Calcium metal that will be produced in 12 hours.
