Magnesium carbonate (MgCO3)


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)

Magnesium oxide react with water and magnesium hydroxide is formed.

magnesium hydroxide is formed! MgOH is formed

It is a basic oxide: with water magnesium hydroxide, Mg(OH)2, is easily formed.

Hydrogen oxide, more commonly called water, reacts with magnesium oxide to form magnesium hydroxide. MgO + H2O --> Mg(OH)2

bec. magnesium oxide is formed which is lighter

Magnesium hydroxide Mg(OH)2 - is formed.

With some oxides metallic hydroxides are formed.

when MG is burned in air we get magnesium dioxide which is a base.this oxide appears as a white ash.when mixed in water we get mahnesium hydroxide which a famous antacid.

No. Magnesium oxide is not soluble in water. On contact with water it will form magnesium hydroxide.

No, it is the suspension of Magnesium hydroxide , when Magnesium oxide is added in water it forms Magnesium hydroxide.

Magnesium oxide will react with water to form Magnesium Hydroxide. Magnesium Hydroxide will not reat further with water

Magnesium Chloride and water would be formed. MgO + 2HCl ------> MgCl2 +H2O


Yes. Magnesium oxide will react with water to form magnesium hydroxide.

No. They are two completely different substances. Magnesium chloride (MgCl2) is a water soluble compound of magnesium and chlorine. Magnesium oxide is a water insoluble compound of magnesium and oxygen.

Magnesium oxide in fact is soluble in water but very little. it means that if you put magnesium in water and fitrate and repeat this a few times you can realize that you don"t have the same amount that you started with. the reason why magnesium oxide is less soluble in water than other metals oxide, is due to the intramolecualr force within the magnesium oxide compound. In fact, magnesium oxide is very small, and the attaction forces are very strong to be broke apart when reacted with water.

Magnesium Oxide + Nitric Acid -----> Magnesium Nitrate + Water. Hope this helps.

No, magnesium oxide is practically insoluble in water; the solubility at room temperature is 0,086 g/L.

yes....magnesium oxide is basic in nature. It reacts with water to give magnesium hydroxide solution which is basic in nature

No the magnesium reacts with the oxygen in the water to from magnesium oxide Mg + H2O= MgO + H2

The product is magnesium oxide (MgO) when magnesium reacts with oxygen.2Mg(s) + O2(g) --> 2MgO(s)magnesium + oxygen --> magnesium oxide

Produces magnesium sulfate and water
