Question

Aluminium reacts with chlorine to produce 
  1. AlCl2
  2. Al2Cl2
  3. AlCl3
  4. Al2Cl3


Solution

The correct option is C AlCl3
Aluminum has three extra electrons in the outermost shell and will easily let the chlorine atoms use them. Each atom of chlorine is deficit of one electron. So each electron would be accepted by one other chlorine atom.
The reaction is,
2Al+3Cl22AlCl3
