How many moles of electrons are required to discharge 1 mole of the following ions: Mg^2+, K^1+, Al^3+, O^2-.
To solve this, first write an equation showing what is happening to each of the elements. Then look at the coefficients to determine the moles of electrons per mole of ion.
Mg = Mg^+2 + 2...
