not really :(
Yes those are your reactants. We know that this makes sense because the oxidation state of Mg is +2 and oxygen is -2 so it would be MgO and Na has an oxidation state of +1 and Cl has an oxidation state of -1 so NaCl is correct
So these will react to form our products of magnesium chloride and sodium oxide would like to attempt the formula for this one?
MgO + NaCl (Reactant)= MgCl2 + Na2O (Product)
Balancing: MgO + 2 NaCl = MgCl2 + Na2O
The type of chemical reaction, it's a Double Displacement reaction
Because you part of of one reactant is replaced by part of another reactant.
Yep all of that is correct
2NaOH + MgCl2 -> Mg(OH)2(s) + 2NaCl
It would be a double replacement reaction and I doubt if it occurs in real life. Everything but the resulting solid precipitate Mg(OH)2 is ions in solution.
