    can be used to advantage. Ethylene glycol is added to water in car radiators to increase the boiling point in hot conditions and to act as antifreeze in cold conditions. The boiling point of water will increase 0.512°C for each 76 g of ethylene glycol (antifreeze) added to 1000 g of water and the freezing point will decrease 1.86°C for each 76 g of ethylene glycol added to 1000 g of water. This is also why salt is sprayed on roads in cold areas—reducing the chance of ice forming by lowering the…

    Also, MUD uses chloromide, which is a mixture of chlorine and ammonia, to disinfect. Unlike chlorine, chloramine has a longer half life in the distribution system and still maintains as an effective protection against pathogens. It is considered safer than treating with chlorine alone. MUD states that "chloraminated water is safe for warm-blooded animals to drink, including humans, kidney dialysis patients, pregnant women, infants, dogs, cats and birds, because their digestive systems neutralize…

    penetrates the surface. When the acid enters the germ it pierces the barrier of the germ slime coating and destroys the micro-organisms containing the diseases. Sometimes instead of using elemental chlorine other products containing chlorine such as sodium hypochlorite (bleaches) or chloramines are used. Sodium Hypochlorite is bleach that can be produced in two ways: o When chlorine gas is dissolved in sodium hydroxide, which produces sodium hypochlorite water and salt. Cl2 + 2NaOH + → NaOCl…

    and then the products that are formed are chlorine gas, hydrogen gas and sodium hydroxide. The reaction at the anode is the oxidation of the chloride, with the spectator ions being sodium. 2Cl^-→〖Cl〗_2+〖2e〗^- Then the sodium chloride solution that didn’t oxidise flows through the diaphragm into the cathode side where water has dissociated. H_2 O↔H^++〖HO〗^-. The H+ then goes and reduces at the cathode to form hydrogen gas2H^++2e^-→H_2. Then at the end sodium hydroxide solution exits the cell…
