🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Delgado's class at FIU.
We´re asked to balance the given reaction between Magnesium (Mg) and Oxygen (O2).
Before balancing the chemical reaction, let’s analyze the number of each element in reactants and products.
Unbalanced Chemical Reaction:
Mg(s) + O2(g) → MgO(s)
Mg 1 Mg 1
O 2 O 1
How would you balance the following equation: Mg + O2 → MgO?
