Similarly one may ask, what gas is produced when magnesium and sulfuric acid react?
Beside above, what happens when magnesium reacts with hot water? Magnesium (Mg) It reacts veryslowlywith hot water. It reacts with steam whenbeingheated and gives hydrogen gas and metaloxide.
Likewise, what happens when magnesium and oxygen react?
When the magnesium metal burns itreactswith oxygen found in the air to formMagnesium Oxide.Magnesium gives up two electrons tooxygen atoms toform this powdery product. This is anexothermicreaction.
Is magnesium highly reactive?
Magnesium occurs naturally only incombinationwith other elements, where it invariably has a +2oxidation state.The free element (metal) can be producedartificially, and ishighly reactive (though in theatmosphere, it is soon coatedin a thin layer of oxide that partlyinhibits reactivity– see passivation).
