Homework Help: CHEMISTRY FORMULA

Posted by Moi on Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 1:01pm.

How would you write the chemical formula for Mercury(I) nitrate.


i have Hg(NO3)2 since the charge of nitrate is -2 and Mercury's is 1.

However, upon checking online i found that the correct formula is Hg2(No3)2. I don't understand where the subscript 2 of Hg originated from'
Thanks
