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.

the answer is oxygen
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 m…ajority of MgO is vaporized. So to answer your question when magnesium burns it can give off fumes (gaseous) of magnesium oxide.
Quick reality check: did you actually ask if burning something was endo thermic?
to give you disease. to give you disease
Use pure magnesium and pure oxygen.
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 tempera…tures 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.
It will stop burning, as nitrogen does not support combustion.
Carbon dioxide MgCO 3 ----------heating in air --------MgO + CO 2
Magnesium Oxide because the Mg will react with the O2 and single displace one of the Oxygen molecules
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 mis…s calculated so it caused a horrendess effect

Oxygen the word symbol is calcium + oxygen > calcium oxide same with magnesium + oxygen > magnesium oxide
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.

The diagram shows four gas-jars. Each contains a different gas. Burning magnesium is put into each jar. air,exhailed air, nitrogen, oxagen

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.
