What Does Hydrochloric Acid and Magnesium Make?


When one mixes hydrochloric acid and magnesium, it produces magnesium chloride and hydrogen gas. Hydrochloric acid is a result of hydrogen chloride in water, which is normally highly caustic and a strong mineral acid with many industrial uses.

Magnesium chloride. MgCl2.
Let's see! MgO + 2HCl - MgCl. 2. H. 2. O. You get a salt, magnesium chloride, and water.
The products formed are Hydrogen gas (resulting in fizzing as the gas forms bubbles and is released) and Magnesium Chloride compound. The element produced is therefore Hydrogen and
Magnesium hydroxide plus hydrochloric acid yields magnesium chloride plus water. Mg(OH)2 + 2HCl = MgCl2 + 2H2O
1 Additional Answer
The reaction between magnesium and hydrochloric acid produces magnesium chloride and hydrogen gas. The equation of this reaction is Mg(s) + 2HCl (aq) -> MgCl2 (aq) + H2 (g). Usually, when dilute hydrochloric acid reacts with a metal, hydrogen gas is produced.
