#### Explanation:

And so we calculate the molar quantity WITH RESPECT to

But we know that calcium chloride speciates in solution to give THREE equivalents of ions......

And thus

Are you with me? The stoichiometry of the formula determines the respective concentration of the ions in solution. How would this change if we had for instance,
