If you add hydrochloric acid (HCl) to magnesium (Mg) metal, what will you observe? What products form in this reaction?

  • chemistry -

    HCL + MG -- MGCL2 + H2

  • chemistry -

    OK, EXCEPT you may not write all caps for the formulas.
    It should be written as
    HCl + Mg ==> MgCl2 + H2.

    MG and Mg are not the same although there are no elements with the symbol M or G.
