A sample of magnesium metal reacts with hydrochloric acid solution to produce magnsesium chloride solution and hydrogen gas.
a)write a balanced chemical equation for this reaction and include phase designations.
The phase designations would be s for solid, aq for aqueous, and g for gas.
How do you do this?
Mg(s) +HCL(aq) --> MgCl(aq) + H2(g)
Would MgCl be aqueous?
See Bob Pursley's response above.
