Reaction: Mg(s) + N2(g) → Mg3N2(s)
Balance Mg: We have 1 Mg on the reactant side and 3 Mg on the product side→add a coefficient of 3 to Mg:
3Mg(s) + N2(g) → Mg3N2(s)
**reaction is already balanced
Balance the following equations, and indicate whether they are combination, decomposition, or combustion reactions.
Mg(s) + N2(g) → Mg3N2(s)
