They would both be in a liquid state. At room temperature,
sodium is a solid and chlorine is a gas. Sodium would have to
be heated to 97.5 degrees C to melt and chlorine would have to
be cooled to -101.6 degrees C to liquify. If you are talking
about sodium chloride (salt) it is a solid at room
temperature and would have have to be heated to 801 degrees C
to melt to a liquid.
