Mg(NO2)2 is an ionic compound that dissociates itself upon its addition to the solvent to form a solution. When it is in the solution it forms ions. The balanced dissociation for for Mg(NO2)2 is
Mg(NO2)2 --> Mg^2+ + 2 NO2^-1
The dissociation of Mg(NO2)2 forms 1 mole of Magnesium ion (Mg^2+) and 2 moles of Nitrite ion (NO2^-1). The equation is already balanced
