then do i need to balance the equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
since mgbr2 is neutral and cl2 has charge of -2?
pottersheep
  • pottersheep
Technically, yes. But look at the equation, we're lucky. It turned out balanced
pottersheep
  • pottersheep
Each Cl has a charge of -1
pottersheep
  • pottersheep
but theres two of them

  • anonymous
oh do you balance the equation after you write out the reaction
