When an aqueous solution of silver nitrate is added to an aqueous solution of iron chloride, iron nitrate and silver chloride is formed.

FeCl2 ------> Fe+2 + 2Cl-1

AgNO3 ------> Ag+1 + NO3-1

The net ionic equation for the reaction is;

FeCl2 + 2AgNO3 -> Fe(NO3)2 + 2AgCl(s)

Two moles of AgNO3 are required to react with one mole of FeCl2 to forms two mole of AgCl and one mole of Fe(NO3)2.
