Solution: Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction of aqueous solutions of magnesium chloride and potassium phosphate.a. MgCl2(aq) + K3PO4(aq) → K3Mg(s) + PO4Cl2(aq)b. 3 MgCl2(aq) + 2 K3PO4(aq) → 3 K

Problem

Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction of aqueous solutions of magnesium chloride and potassium phosphate.

a. MgCl2(aq) + K3PO4(aq) → K3Mg(s) + PO4Cl2(aq)

b. 3 MgCl2(aq) + 2 K3PO4(aq) → 3 K2Mg(s) + 2 PO4Cl3(aq)

c. MgCl(aq) + KPO4(aq) → MgPO4(s) + KCl(aq)

d. MgCl2(aq) + 2 KPO4(aq) → Mg(PO4)2(s) + 2 KCl(aq)

e. 3 MgCl2(aq) + 2 K3PO4(aq) → Mg3(PO4)2(s) + 6 KCl(aq)
