How do I write the skeleton equation representing the heating o f magnesium carbonate to produce solid magnesium oxide and carbon dioxide gas?

  • chemistry -

    MgCO3 + heat ==> MgO + CO2
    If I were in the classroom, I would write a delta sign over the arrow (for heat) but I can't do that on these boards.
