is [Cr(H2O)4Cl2] is same as [CrCl2(H2O)4]?

Dear Student,

Yes, both the given compounds are same. Both the compounds contain same metal, same number and type of ligands. However, the structural formula in first case is written in a wrong way as anionic ligands are written before neutral ligands. The correct structural formula is the second compound i.e. [CrCl‚Äč2(H2O)4].
