    In an experiment, 0.50 mol of chlorine gas was bubbled into one aqueous solution containing a mixture of 0.66 mol of sodium iodide and 0.66 mol of sodium bromide.
    Assuming that ALL THE CHLORINE GAS REACTED, calculate the number of moles of iodine and bromine produced.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I thought that the no. of moles of both iodine and bromine would be 0.5 mol, because 1 mol of chlorine produces 1 mol of Br2 / I2 in the mole ratio, but it's not so.

    Any simple elaboration would be highly appreciated!

    I'll move this to the chemistry section where you're more likely to get some help
