Can calcium react with chlorine gas to give calcium chloride?

  • Chemistry-please help -

    Yes. I assume you have seen magnesium ribbon burn in air (Mg+O2>MgO2).

    Calcium is more reactive than magnesium.
    And, chlorine is more reactive than air (air is 30 percent O2).

    So imagine the reaction between calcium and chlorine, very reactive.
