1 Answer

Solution :-

(a) Thermal decomposition reaction (Thermolysis) Decomposition of potassium chlorate: When heated strongly, potassium chlorate decomposes into potassium chloride and oxygen. This reaction is used for the preparation of oxygen.

2KClO3 + Heat → 2KCl + 3O2

(b) Electrolytic decomposition reaction (Electrolysis) Decomposition of sodium chloride: On passing electricity through molten sodium chloride, it decomposes into sodium and chlorine

\( 2NaCl \overset{electricity}{\to}2Na+Cl_2\)

(c) Photodecomposition reaction (Photolysis) Decomposition of hydrogen peroxide: In the presence of light, hydrogen peroxide decomposes into water and oxygen.

\( 2H_2O_2\overset{light}{\to}2H_2O\)
