molten alluminum chloride is electrolysed using a current of 0.5A to produce 27g of alluminum
therefore the number of faradays of electricity consumed

AL^3+ 3e- ------Al
1 mole is deposited by passing 3mole of electron
therefore no of faradays of electricity=3*1.6*10-19*6*10^23=5.96 F
because charge on 1 mole of electron =1F=96500C
