FREE Expert Solution

For this problem, we’re being asked to determine the number of chlorine atoms in 4.50 mol of aluminum chloride?


Recall that Avogadro’s Number gives us the number of entities present in 1 mole: 

There are 6.022 × 1023 Cl atoms in 1 mole Cl


We can do a moles → atoms calculation based on Avogadro's number to solve for # atoms of Cl in AlCl3


**Recall that in writing the chemical formula the charge of cation = subscript of the anion 

**Charge of Al = 3+; Charge of Cl (halogen) = -1
