Textbook Problem

Suppose you wish to prepare a sample of magnesium chloride. One way to do this is to use an acid-base reaction, the reaction of magnesium hydroxide with hydrochloric acid. Mg(OH)2(s) + 2 HCl(aq) → MgC12(aq) + 2 H2O()

When the reaction is complete, evaporating the water will give solid magnesium chloride. Suggest another way to prepare MgC12.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Preparation of MgCl2 other than given way has to be suggested.

Explanation

Preparation of MgCl2 is shown below,

  

Magnesium carbonate is reaction with hydrochloric acid which yields the magnesium chloride, carbon di oxide and water.  The reaction is shown below,
