    Hi guys
    Could you help me?

    Can someone help me with these 2 questions? First one is How do the results for elecrolysing compounds in soloution deffer from the results for electrolysing molten compounds?
    Second is Which4 elements are present in the solution of sodium sulphate in water? Where does the hydrogen come from when it is formed at the cathode during the electrolysis of sodiun sulphate solution? Need help badly guys just these two questions need answering

    Solution-something to do with aqueous-therefore water involved-maybe hydrogen/oxygen evolved from the water.

    In a molten solution the cation (e.g. sodium) is evolved at the cathode. In an aqueous solution it is hydrogen.

    Sodium, sulphur, oxygen and hydrogen.

    The H+ ions from the water, since the water ionises to form OH- ions and H+ ions.
