    MgBr2 + Cl2 SingleDisplacement! MgCl2 + Br2

    first how would u write this as a balanced equation? wouldnt it be mgbr2+cl ?

    So, MgBr2 + Cl2 => MgCl2 + Br2

    Chlorine on its own is diatomic :) There are a few elements that are diatomic like that

    since mgbr2 is neutral and cl2 has charge of -2?

    Technically, yes. But look at the equation, we're lucky. It turned out balanced

    Each Cl has a charge of -1
