Elemental boron is produced in one industrial process by heating diboron trioxide with magnesium metal, also producing magnesium oxide as a by-product. Write the unbalanced chemical equation for this process.

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The unbalanced equation for the reaction obtained by heating di boron trioxide with magnesium metal, producing elemental boron and magnesium oxide.

Concept Introduction:

A chemical reaction represents the conversion of reactant to product. Here, reactants are placed on left side of the reaction arrow and products are placed on right side of the reaction arrow.

One reactant can dissociate to form two product, one or more reactants can combine to form one product. The unbalanced chemical reaction can have different number of atoms of reactants and products in a chemical reaction which can be balanced by writing them with correct stoichiometric coefficients.

Explanation of Solution

Considering that s represents solid, l represents liquid and g represents gaseous state, the reaction obtained by heating di boron trioxide with magnesium metal, producing elemental boron and magnesium oxide, is shown by the following unbalanced equation:

B2O3(s)<
