metal + acid ---> salt + hydrogen gas

Magnesium is a metal. Therefore,

Magnesium + acid ---> a magnesium salt + hydrogen gas

Magnesium chloride is formed in solution and hydrogen is released.

The reaction produces hydrogen gas as will most reaction between an acid and a metal.

Hydrogen gas is formed when magnesium reacts with dilute sulphuric acid.

No, hydrogen would be released from sulphuric acid. Magnesium + Sulfuric Acid --> Magnesium Sulphate + Hydrogen

When magnesium reacts with hydrochloric acid, hydrogen bubbles are produced and magnesium chloride is formed.

they will form a magnesium salt and hydrogen gas

I'm not sure, but based on my knowledge of chemistry, a compound has different properties from its components. So magnesium salt should not react with HCl (Hydrochloric acid) unless it dissociates in water and magnesium (the element) is present. Anyway when magnesium is mixed with an acid (any acid, not just stomach acid), hydrogen gas is produced and a salt is formed.

When they are mixed, a displacement chemical reaction occurs in which Magnesium replaces hydrogen from sulphuric acid forming magnesium sulphate ang giving out hydrogen.

Almost any acid will react with magnesium to produce hydrogen.

yes they do. and magnesium chloride and nitric acid are formed

hydrogen gasmagnesium + sulfuric acid → magnesium sulfate + hydrogen

Hydrogen and Magnesium Chloride as a by-product.

a magnesium salt of the acid, and hydrogen gas - water is already present.

If you react Magnesium (Mg) with hydrochloric acid (HCL) you get magnesium chloride (MgCl2) and hydrogen (2H). Magnesium+hydrochloric acid=magnesium chloride+hydrogen. Mg+HCL=MgCl2+2H

No acid is formed. The reaction produces hydrogen gas and magnesium chloride, a salt.

This reaction makes hydrogen gas escape from magnesium surface immersed in acid solution. Also a magnesium salt is formed.

The products that are formed will be magnesium salt, water and carbon dioxide. Exactly what salt is made depends the acid used. Hydrochloric acid produces magnesium chloride; sulphuric acid produces magnesium sulphate; nitric acid produces magnesium nitrate.

Magnesium carbonate (MgCO3)Explanation:Magnesium oxide is a basic oxide. A property of basic oxides is that they react with acid to form salt and water. Soda water contains an acid called carbonic acid. Magnesium oxide can react with carbonic acid to form magnesium carbonate as shown in the equation below:MgO(s) + H2CO3(aq) --> MgCO3(aq) + H2O(l)
