what ions would for from this compound in an aqueous solution?
how would i write the equation that forms these ions?
The part in the so-called coordination sphere is [Co(NH3)5Cl] (the part in the brackets) stays as written and that doesn't ionize. The part outside the coordination sphere does ionize so you would get [Co(NH3)5Cl]^+2 + 2Cl^-
