# Solution: The coordination number for Mg2+ ion is usually six. Assuming this assumption holds, determine the anion coordination number in the following compounds.MgS

###### Problem

The coordination number for Mg2+ ion is usually six. Assuming this assumption holds, determine the anion coordination number in the following compounds.

MgS

###### Solution

We are asked to identify the coordination number of the anion in MgS.

We are given that the coordination number for Mg2+ ion is usually six and this assumption holds. To answer this, we shall use the following equation:

Where: C.N. = Coordination Number
