    Magnesium is the twelfth element on the periodic table. It is located in the second group called the alkaline earth metals. Natural magnesium contains three different isotopes, and there are twelve others that are recognized. Seawater is a rich source of magnesium in the form of salt. Magnesium is the eighth most abundant element in the earth's crust. Magnesium readily ignites upon heating in air and burns with a dazzling white flame. To extinguish the flame water should not be used. Alkaline earth

    ORIGINS OF MAGNESIUM Magnesium is found in large amounts throughout our bodies. We obtain it predominantly from dietary sources. We can also obtain magnesium in many other places since it is the seventh most prevalent element from our universe. The earth’s crust contains large amounts of this element and we can obtain it from the minerals dolomite and carnallite. It is, however, most commonly extracted from our ocean waters. “Every cubic kilometer of seawater contains about 1.3 billion kilograms

    • 3 Pages

    of Magnesium Oxide and Determination of its Empirical Formula Background When elements react to form compounds they do so in specific ratios. The formula that describes the smallest whole number ratio for elements in a compound is the empirical formula. In this experiment, you will heat magnesium in air (a source of oxygen) to generate magnesium oxide. By analyzing the mass of the magnesium and oxygen that have reacted, you will determine the number of moles of each present in the magnesium oxide

    compound of Magnesium and Oxygen, formed by combustion of Magnesium in air. Introduction The empirical formula of a compound shows the simplest ratio in which atoms of constituent elements of the compound are present in 1 molecule of the compound. In this experiment, we will measure the mass of a magnesium strip before burning it, and then the mass of the compound left after combustion. Presuming that all the mass added is entirely oxygen, we can find the amount of oxygen which all the magnesium has combined

    Rate of reaction of Magnesium and HCL In order to find a good set of results for this experiment I need to decide what molars i am going to use, and also how i will make them. Once i have found which molars i would like to use i will give evidence of why i have chosen them, i will also decide which variables are important to considerm e.g The Values of Mg, Volume of acid. I also need to think about how i am going to measure the speed of the reaction in order to get a table of reliable results

    Determination of the Valency of Magnesium Objectives: In this experiment, we can know about the quantitative relations between amounts of reactants and products of a reaction so that the stoichiometry reaction can be determined by a known mass of magnesium and a measured collection of hydrogen gas. Introduction: In chemistry, stoichiometry is the study of the combination of elements in chemical reactions. Stoichiometry refers to the relative number of atoms of various elements found

    Magnesium Magnesium, also known as atomic number 12 was discovered in 1808 by Sir Humphry Davy who was a British Chemist best known for his experiments in electro-chemistry and his invention of a miner's safety lamp (BBC News, 2014). Magnesium is a chemical element with symbol Mg. Magnesium is a light, fairly strong, whitish, silver Alkaline Earth Metal that is the eighth most abundant element in the Earth's Mantle and the fourth most common element on earth, making up 13% of the planet's mass (Winter
