The orientation of the water molecules in the hydration shells of Mg2+ and Cl- have been calculated from a molecular dynamics simulation of a 1.1 molal MgCl2 solution with the central force model for water. The results are compared with information obtained from neutron diffraction studies with isotopic substitution.
