What is the chemical reaction between magnesium and oxygen called?
Oxidation. At high temperature magnesium ignites - and that is called combustion.

creates a white flame.
Magnesium is a reactive metal in groupe two of the periodic table and reacts with oxygen gas in group six to produce Magnesium Oxide. The reaction is as follows: . 2Mg +… O 2 gives 2MgO
2Mg + O 2 -> 2MgO - violent reaction giving off intense white light and MgO as "smoke" - take care if doing this - some expensive car wheels are made of Magnesium alloy!!
The reaction is highly exothermic as heat energy is released from the system to the surroundings whereas in endothermic the heat is absorbed from the surroundings into the sys…tem and you can also observe or see the smoke coming out of the apparatus in which the reaction is occurring or taking place.Heat energy is being released in the form of smoke.Therefore the reaction is exothermic.
such a compound is an oxidizing agent as , KMnO 4 , K 2 Cr 2 O 7 , K 2 CrO 4 , MnO 2 , H 2 O 2 etc.
In the reaction between magnesium and oxygen the mass of magnesium and oxygen was 2.5 grams how much magnesium oxide was formed?
The magnesium will burn, said otherwise it will be oxidated by the oxygen. As this two pals are very fond of each other, this oxidation will create fire in some conditions, li…ke when wet by water. This is a dangerous reaction. You can do it only if you are working at the television. Don't do that at home if you are not a presenter.
Hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water. It is a very energetic reaction.
In Elements and Compounds
A reaction between a single element and a compound is usually an example of a single displacement reaction. If the lone element is a metal, it replaces the metal in the compou…nd. If it is a nonmetal, it replaces the nonmetal in the compound. So the products of this reaction would be Magnesium Hydroxide and Sodium. Because Magnesium has an oxidation number of 2 + (it's in the second column of the periodic table), one Magnesium combines with 2 hydroxides. So the unbalanced reaction looks like this: Mg + NaOH -> Na + Mg(OH) 2 Once it's balanced, we get this: Mg + 2NaOH -> 2Na + Mg(OH) 2
In Metal and Alloys
2Mg + 02 = 2Mg0
In Metal and Alloys
Yes. Because there is a chemical change
While many reactions involve oxygen, only combustion reactions require oxygen as a reactant.
2Mg (s) + O2 (g) --> 2MgO (s)
