Answer:

You have the same number of metal ions for each example: #"Avogadro's number"#, which is?????

Explanation:

But it depends on how they worded the question. Cations or anions do not occur in isolation. #1# #mol# of #NiCl_2# formally contains #3# #mol# of ions: #2xxCl^-#; and #1xxNi^(2+)#.

AS the question currently stands, however, there are #N_A# metal ions of #Cu(I)# and #Ni(II)#. Which has the most mass?
