5.3 write ionic half-equations for the reactions at the electrodes in aluminium extraction

Half equations

The reaction at the negative electrode (cathode) for aluminium extraction is:

Al3- + 3e----> Al

The reaction at the positive electrode (anode) for aluminium extraction is:

2O2- ----> O+ 4e
