Recharging a Lead Acid Battery with Electrolysis Reaction

CHEM-UKJRPH

When using a lead-acid battery to start a car, $1.30 \textrm{ g}$ of lead ($207.2 \textrm{ g/mol}$) is consumed from the anode.

How long, in minutes, will it take to fully recharge the battery, converting the $\textrm{PbSO}_4$ back into $\textrm{Pb}(s)$, with a current of $0.550 \textrm{ A}$?

A

9.17 minutes

B

12.5 minutes

C

18.3 minutes

D

25.1 minutes

E

36.7 minutes
