The equation demonstrates a reaction of sodium chloride and fluorine.

2NaCl + F2 → 2NaF + Cl2

In order for the reaction to proceed, for every two moles of sodium chloride, there must be at least how many mole(s) of fluorine?

  1. the equation clearly shows just one mole of F2

    Note that "moles of fluorine" means moles of F2, not moles of F.
    Why is that?
