# How would we represent the reaction of magnesium oxide with dihydrogen gas?

Apr 26, 2017

$M g O \left(s\right) + {H}_{2} \left(g\right) + \Delta \rightarrow M g \left(s\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(g\right)$

#### Explanation:

I don't think they use this process to refine magensium ore. You would need FIERCE heat and high dihydrogen pressures, but the reaction is potentially doable.
