Which gas makes burning magnesium go out?
Nitrogen would extinguish the flame. Unlike most burning fuels, magnesium will continue to burn in carbon dioxide because its flame is hot enough to decompose carbon dioxide to carbon and oxygen.

If magnesium burns in oxygen gas to produce magnesium oxide then what mass of Mg will react with 0.25 L of oxygen gas at 80 C and 770 mm Hg?
Answer . To solve this problem you must first write a balanced reaction. Then use stoichiometry and the Ideal Gas Law to solve for the answer. First, write the balanced reaction. The reactants are Mg and O 2 , and the product is MgO. For step by step instructions on how to write a balance…d reaction, see the Related Questions to the left. Then find the number of mole of oxygen in the container using the Ideal Gas Law . For step-by-step instructions on solving Ideal Gas Law problems, see the Related Questions to the left. Finally, use stoichiometry to determine how much Mg will react with that amount of O 2 . And yes, you guessed it, see the Related Questions to the left for how to do that. (MORE)
It burns very brightly and you should not observe it with the naked eye. It combines with oxygen in the room air, forming magnesium oxide, MgO.
A compress of half milk half water-soak a facecloth in mixture squeeze out excess and apply with light pressure for a few min. to each area. This works to reduce redness and irritation
The sun burns small amounts of helium and when combined withoxygen, the helium makes neon. The sun burns mostly hydrogen.
\nNo, The chemical reaction changes the oxygen/carbon dioxide ratio sufficiently to extinguish the flame. Therefore the increased amount of carbon dioxide stops the flame from burning.
When magnesium burns in air it creates a very bright white flame. When magnesium and oxygen mix,(mixing a substance with oxygen is called oxydation)it creates a new substance called magnesium oxide, which is a white powder. 2Mg+O2-----> 2MgO Magnesium oxide is a compound.
They react violently with water forming hydroxides. This process cleaves the O-H bond of water and releases energy as it is an exothermic reaction. You usually think of water as a fire extinguisher. This is true but only for combustion reactions that require oxygen to combust. When water particip…ates in the reaction, this doesn't hold up and energy is released. (MORE)
Magnesium burns by the following reaction: 2Mg(s) + O 2 (g) --> 2MgO + heat In fact the magnesium burns at such a high temperature (I think close to 5000 o F) that the majority of MgO is vaporized. So to answer your question when magnesium burns it can give off fumes (gaseous) of magnesium oxi…de. (MORE)
Normally magnesium in liquid nitrogen (-196 deg Celsius) turns brittle and can be broken into pieces but when magnesium is fuse lit in liquid nitrogen it forms magnesium nitrate and burns rigorously with bright light. Mg + N2 = MgN2 + heat R . C Salvi email@example.com
When a magnesium ribbon is burned it combines with molecular oxygen forming magnesium oxide (MgO); the flame color is white. A huge spark. Kind of like a firework-ish. You kind of have to see it.
Yes. Magnesium is very flammable. It burns with a very bright white flame. Magnesium fires cannot be put out with water or ordinary fire extinguishers.
The magnesuim melts and the reaction of it is it produces a bright light !. then when it has cooled down the magnesuim turns into magnesuim oxide because the magnesuim and oxygen attach together because the particles mix together to make magesuim oxide! :)
If pure magnesium is burned in pure oxygen, the compound magnesium oxide is produced. If the magnesium is burned in ordinary air, the same compound is the initial product, but magnesium oxide can react rapidly with water vapor to form another compound, magnesium hydroxide, which might easily be the …predominant product detected.

When the magnesium is burned then oxyen is added MgO so now the molar mass of magnesium is 24.31+16 becuase the magnesium stays just add the oxygen... hope it help!!
When magnesium burns in pure nitrogen gas magnesium nitride is formes what mass of magnesium must be provided in order to produce 1.19 grams of magnesium nitride?
3Mg + N2 --> Mg3N2 molar mass of Mg3N2: 100.9494 g/molmolar mass of Mg: 24.305 1.19 g Mg3N2 * 1 mol /100.9494 g * 3 mol Mg/ 1mol Mg3N2 * 24.305g/1 mol = 0.860g
To burn magnesium, simply hold it in the flame of a Bunsen burner. It takes several moments for it to begin burning, but it does so with an incredibly intense white light.
If you heat magnesium in a crucible until the magnesium burns A white powder is left behind as the reaction What has the magnesium joined with to make the white powder?
the oxygen. ====== . Magnesium Element Type: Metal when burned can produce dazzling white light. With non-metallic elemental reaction: 2Mg + O2 2MgO . (Magnesium oxide) Molecular Formula: MgO Physical Properties: white powder, easily, odorless, tasteless, this product does not dissolve in water …and ethanol, melting point 2852 â, boiling point 3600 â, magnesium oxide has a high degree of fire-resistant insulation. MgO +2 HCl MgCl2 + H2O MgO + NH4Cl = MgCl2 + NH3 +2 H2O The role of water is slow to produce magnesium hydroxide . Reference: http://www.sinomaterial.com/products/magnesium-die-casting.htm (MORE)
Magnesium's flame temperature can be 3,100 Â°C (5,610 Â°F). Its autoignition temperature (the temperature at which it commences burning) is 473 Â°C (883 Â°F).
There are many gases that would cause a human being to lose consciousness if he inhaled one of them ... even some after which he would never again regain it. None of those scenarios would involve true "sleep". Carbon monoxide, although colorless, odorless, and tasteless, produces unconsciousn…ess followed by death. Helium, after producing a funny voice, also leads to death. Neither of these is chemically poisonous. They're simply accepted by your body and take the place of oxygen, without which you can't live very long. Directly poisonous gases include things like bromine, chlorine, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, and the nerve gases and "mustard gas" manufactured for war. One whiff of any of these, you're in trouble, and you know it. What you're looking for is a gas that could cause unconsciousness when inhaled, but after which the person could be easily revived, without any lasting harm. These would be any of the single gases or mixtures used as anesthetics during surgery. We'll mention only one of them: Nitrous oxide ( N 2 O ) Nitrous oxide is commonly known as "laughing gas" or "sweet air". At room temperature, it's colorless and non-flammable, with a slightly sweet odor and taste. It's used in surgery and dentistry for its anesthetic and analgesic effects. It's known as "laughing gas" because of the euphoric effects of inhaling it, a property that has led to its recreational use. It's also used as an oxidizer in rocketry and in motor racing to increase the power output of engines. A comment in the discussion section of this question suggests that nitrogen could be an answer. Nitrogen makes up about 78% of the air that you're breathing right now, so we'll let you think about how effective nitrogen is at putting you to sleep. (MORE)
Unoxidized Magnesium oxidizes very readily, and yields substantial quantities of energy when it does so- it does this in the form of heat, which is radiated at extreme temperatures as light. Normally atoms have a specific electron energy state that corresponds with the visible wavelength- giving …many other elements distinctive colours. Magnesium lacks these, ergo produces white light (across the spectrum) which can make it seem brighter than other elements that produce coloured light. (MORE)
Sends fuel injections into the engines there for running the chains, and the motor it makes the wheels spin, Thus making the car move.
When burning magnesium the light shines much brighter... so much to the point where it can blind your eyes if you look directly at it while burning... on the other hand methane can be observed while being lit and it wont mess up your sight in other words it is NOT nearly as bright!
The magnesium gets heavier when it is burned because it forms a new compound with oxygen in the air.
Magnesium Oxide because the Mg will react with the O2 and single displace one of the Oxygen molecules
Which gas makes up most of the air and does not react very much and a burning splint will go out in this gas?
Nitrogen gas makes up most of the atmosphere. However carbon dioxide extinguishes a burning splint and is found in a small amount in the atmosphereNitrogen gas. It is an inert gas that makes up over 70% of the Earth's atmosphere.
Hydrochloric acid (HCl) reacts with magnesium carbonate (MgCO 3 ) to form carbon dioxide. In fact, any acid will react with any carbonate to form CO 2 . Two hydrogen ions (positively charged) will become interested in the negatively charged carbonate (CO 3 -2 ), and one oxygen atom will dissociate …from the carbonate (taking both extra electrons!) to bind with the hydrogens to form water. The carbonate is now CO 2 and will escape the beaker as a gas. The equation is: 2HCl + MgCO 3 ---> MgCl 2 + H 2 O + CO 2(g) (MORE)
No, it doesn't, except when ignited by high heat. Magnesium tape is one of the most reliable fuses. Magnesium also burns in water. Google the 1955 LeMans disaster
ofcourse. release of energy(in the form of light and heat ) is always involved with combustion
What happens when magnesium burns? What do you need for magnesium to burn? Will magnesium burn if you have it in a closed container? No. Why not? It needs air. Why does it need air? There is oxygen in the air. Magnesium needs oxygen to burn. So, when magnesium burns, you start with magnesium and end… up with a compound that contains both magnesium and oxygen. Magnesium has an atomic weight of 24. Oxygen has an atomic weight of 16. So if you start out with 24 grams of Magnesium you should end up with 40 grams of Magnesium Oxide. (MORE)
it can make water(h20)when mixed with oxygen it is an extremly flamable gas for example the Hindenburg was filled with hydrogen gas to make it lift off but the designers miss calculated so it caused a horrendess effect
If you get burned and you notice it then right away grab a wash cloth get it cold and damp. don't rub dab it will hurt. put on aloe lotion quickly and so much of it! this will be gone with in 2 and a half days trust me hope this helps!! (:
Any substance starts burning due to its reaction with oxygen. Magnesium metal has a low ignition temp. and starts burning at even room temperature in air to give magnesium oxide as the product which is a white coloured powder.
Oxygen the word symbol is calcium + oxygen > calcium oxide same with magnesium + oxygen > magnesium oxide
Either these three from the bbcbitesize periodic table test. Magnesium oxide Magnesium hydroxide . Magnesium carbonate .
Removing from an oxygenated environment. for example placing in a test tube of carbon dioxide
Stars don't burn in the sense we are use to here on Earth. They do not combine oxygen with a fuel to generate energy. Stars shine brightly because they take atoms (in the case of our Sun - hydrogen atoms) and squeeze them together under tremendous temperatures and pressure from gravity, forcing them… to fuse into heavier atoms - helium for our star. There is an extra bit of mass that is converted to energy in this process by Einstein's E=MC 2 , which generates the heat and light we see and feel. (MORE)
Yes, magnesium burn in the presence of carbon dioxide and we get oxide of magnesium.
2Mg + O 2 ---> 2MgO If the magnesium is burnt in air rather than pure oxygen some Mg 3 N 2 magnesium nitride is formed. This is evidenced by the faint smell of ammonia when the combustion products are hydrolysed.
If magnesium loses two electrons and form Mg 2+ ion, it will get the configuration of the nearest noble gas, neon
Simply burning magnesium in the steam of boiling water which has the cool properties of A) bright light as Mg reacts. B) Mg turns to MgO which leaves afew loose Hydrogens about and these react with the Mg burning and show as a orange flame. C) Mg carries on reacting underwater creating bright flame.… The piece of magnesium is too tiny to sustain itself when submerged in water, but it does burn brighter when it comes into contact with the water.. If you are heating the magnesium in a glass tube, the magnesium also reacts with the glass. That leaves dark grey products (including silicon and perhaps boron from the glass) as well as the white magnesium oxide. (MORE)
Possibilities: . Higher proportion of ethanol in the fuel . A lot of extra weight in the vehicle
Use Aloe Vera, it Is a jelly like substance and just rub it in the burned area and it will relieve the pain and allow the redness to go away. I keep an Alie Vera plant in my garden for medical reasons, however if you don't, you can find them at parks or buy it at the a store. It helps a lot, I know …because I burnt my face with curlers and it healed very quickly. (MORE)
While nitrogen is usually fairly inert, magnesium is so reactivethat even nitrogen can react with it.
The diagram shows four gas-jars. Each contains a different gas. Burning magnesium is put into each jar. air,exhailed air, nitrogen, oxagen
yes it is used in many fireworks. Also burns underwater. Google the 1955 LeMans disaster
Hydrogen is the primary fuel that stars burn. A star fuses two hydrogen atoms together to form one helium atom. Energy is released during the process that we see as light and feel as heat.
No it will not. It will either be leaking or become clogged which will make the heater not produce any heat. it has nothing to do with fuel mileage.
How do you make a gas barbaque not burn so hot I turn it all the way as low s it will go and the grill is still to hot?
You can make a gas barbecue not burn so hot by turning it all theway as low as it will go and and if the grill is still to hot thenyou need to put the gas off first for the grill to cool down.
If you have a burn from Nair, you can get some 1 percenthydrocortisone cream from the drugstore, if you don't already havesome. Dr. Joseph S. Eastern says that if the cream doesn't help,you may need to get a prescription cream from your doctor.
Usually oxygen, primarily because it is how fire is made. But for longer, there isn't a possible way to make it burn 'longer' with gas, but more rather use wax and string that are more durable to fire. Or alternatively you can put a plant near the fire (out of burning range) to give the fire as much… oxygen as possible. hope it helps (MORE)
