Predict the products of a reaction between solid beryllium chloride and solid potassium,write the products in a balanced chemical equation also indicate what type of reaction this is.
11 U chemistry -
solid, as in powdered, mixed, at room temperature in humid room? What do you think will be the reaction? Potassium is more active than Beryllium.
Commercially Beryllium is produced with a reaction with mangnesium
BeF2+ Mg>>MgCl2 + Be
This is exothermic.
Caution on all these: Be is hightly toxic, espcially in dusted forms of compounds.
