# How would you write an unbalanced equation for solid magnesium metal reacts with liquid water to form solid magnesium hydroxide and hydrogen gas?

$\text{Magnesium + water "rarr" magnesium hydroxide + dihydrogen}$
$M g \left(s\right) + 2 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right) \rightarrow M g {\left(O H\right)}_{2} \left(a q\right) + {H}_{2} \left(g\right) \uparrow$
