    in brine water gets reduced before sodium metal does because its reduction potential is higher

    define electrolysis and relate the definition to spontaneity of redox reactions

    Well electrolysis refers to using electrical energy to make an otherwise non-spontaneous redox reaction occur

    can u explain more on that

    if the overall potential of the reaction is positive, then its spontaneous. but if its negative, uv gotta provide energy externally to make d reaction occur

    negative potential is nonspontaneous reaction??
