Hi! If I dissolve MgCl2 in distilled water, will it form into [Mg++] + [Cl-] + [-Cl] ? or [Mg++] + [Cl2--]? -And Why? is it because of stability constants? -Also Are there any intermediate steps in the process? Similarly, If I dissolve MgSO4 in distilled water, without electric currents or temperature / pressure changes, it will dissolve into Mg + SO4, right? or will it go into H2SO4 + MgO, and then MgO + H2O will go into Mg(OH)2 and then Mg(OH)2 + H2O = Mg2 + OH- ?? -Please help!! Thank you for your insights and valuable help!! I can't figure this, as foolish as it is!
