Approx. 0.60 moles of $Z n C {l}_{2}$.

#### Explanation:

In one mole of $Z n C {l}_{2}$ there are $6.022 \times {10}^{23}$ formula units; i.e. $6.022 \times {10}^{23}$ INDIVIDUAL zinc atoms, and $2 \times 6.022 \times {10}^{23}$ INDIVIDUAL chlorine atoms.

Now the mass of one mole of $Z n C {l}_{2}$ is $136.32$ $g$. What is the mass of $3.58 \times {10}^{23}$ formula units of $Z n C {l}_{2}$?
