Tags: magnesium, oxide, reaction
 P: 510 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When acid and metal oxide react the product is salt and water. 2. Relevant equations Write the reaction formula, when hydrochloric acid reacts with magnesium oxide 3. The attempt at a solution Hcl and MgO 2 Hcl + MgO ------> 2H2O+ MgCl I still find it not balanced and dunno how balance it
 P: 1,262 How do you balance reaction equations in general?
