# F321 Molar Ratio- help!

#1
In the following ionic equation, there is 1 mole of AgCl, but 2 moles of Cl^-, despite the molar ratio being 1:1. I don't understand this; can somebody explain why please!
Ag^+ + Cl^- --> AgCl

Deduce the amount, in moles, of the Group 2 chloride that the student dissolves.
Hence deduce the relative atomic mass and the identity of the Group 2 metal

From a previous questions, we know that the ionic equation for the reaction is
Ag^+ + Cl^- --> AgCl
And that there are 0.06 moles of AgCl

But in the mark scheme, it says: amount of Group 2 chloride = 1⁄2 × 0.0600 OR = 0.0300mol

I understand the rest of how you work it out, but not this first part
Sorry if I'm not making myself clear!

What are group 2 metals? Can you list them? Is silver between them?

It was AgNo^3 and the question was asking you to work out what was bonded to the chloride in the first part; I think the correct answer was Magnesium.
The reaction was the silver nitrate test for identifying halides.
