### Abstract

The normal subgroups of a group are important in group theory. The determination of normal subgroups is not usually easy especially when this group is infinite. In this paper, we construct infinitely many normal subgroups of free groups by using the exponent sum for equivalent classes. Furthermore, we will determine subgroups of these normal subgroups.
