# How many moles of Cl are in 2.7 mol CaCl_2?

May 17, 2016

5.4 mol Cl

#### Explanation:

One mole of Ca$C {l}_{2}$ has one mole of Calcium and 2 moles of Cl atoms.

I can write two conversion factors using this fact

(1 mole of Ca$C {l}_{2}$ \ 2 moles of Cl) and ( 2 moles of Cl \ 1 mole of Ca$C {l}_{2}$)

( 2.7 moles of Ca$C {l}_{2}$ ) x ( 2 moles of Cl \ 1 mole of Ca$C {l}_{2}$)

5.4 moles of Cl.
