Simple question here, but it's a review question on a worksheet and I'm wondering if there is a trick to it since it seems obvious.
The question is: If you had 10 Cl atoms and 10 K atoms, how many molecules would form? At first thought I assumed he wanted us to just fill out the electron shell of Cl, sharing with K, until we ran out of atoms, thus giving us 2 molecules.
For some reason bohr shell model, balancing chem. equations, etc were fine for me but this just seemed worded funny.
Thanks for any help. First year chem student, e. science major
