Charges and coefficients?

Postby aisteles1G » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:15 pm

Sorry if this is a very simplistic question but Im not sure if 2Cl- means it has a -2 charge or just a -1 charge? Does the coefficient get multiplied to the charge or no? Thanks for any help!

2Cl- means that the -1 charge of Cl- is multiplied by 2.

yes 2 Cl- ions will produce an overall -2 charge of that molecule
