# What are you felt behind with when you burn magnesium?

## What is the reaction on and product when magnesium is burnt? My answer would be that the white powder left behind is called Magnesium Chloride but I want to double check.

$\text{With what are you left behind...?}$.... Well, $\text{magnesium oxide...}$
$M g \left(s\right) + \frac{1}{2} {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow {\underbrace{M g O \left(s\right)}}_{\text{magnesium oxide}}$
