    affect the chemical structure of the magnesium in the fire extinguishing process. However, a protective coat of magnesium oxide is formed on all the surface of the magnesium as it reacts very fast with air. This layer makes it hard for it continue burning. However, in case water is used when removing the residues even after several days, the fire may reignite. The water will firstly expose the surface of the magnesium residues to reaction and react with it (magnesium) to release flammable…

  • Chemistry: Calcium And Magnesium

    Of the most abundant elements together 98 percent of the 8 elements form the mass of the earth’s crust, ocean and atmosphere. Two of the most abundant elements of the eight are calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are located on the periodic table located both in group 2 sharing the same family meaning that they share chemical property’s as well as the same valence electron because of their location and family relation to the period table. The alkaline metals are a reactive group of…

  • Explain The Empirical Formula Of Magnesium Oxide

    Abstract: In this lab our main objective is to find the empirical formula of MgO, magnesium oxide. To do this first we have to make sure when we burn Mg in the crucible and it reacts to with O. This lab experiment Mg is complicated by another factor. Mg is so reactive that it reacts with N in the air so some of the Mg which is suppose to react with O will react will N instead. This obstacle can be overcome by simply adding water to the Mg3N2 to yield MgOH2 and NH3. This will undo the reaction so…

  • Professor Bahde's Organic Chemistry

    The learning assistants for Professor Bahde’s Organic Chemistry I class, Allyson Dang and I, wanted to give the students a problem to work on involving a reaction mechanism. The students in that class have been struggling in many areas of the subject, but the main issue they have is drawing out reaction mechanisms. Knowing how to draw out reaction mechanisms is one of the most, if not the most important part of organic chemistry. When theoretically reacting molecules, one must know not only…

  • What Ethical Issues Arise Regarding Improving Or Enhancing A Patient's Quality Of Life?

    Introduction Preterm birth can cause serious health problems or even be fatal for a baby, particularly if it happens very early (Weiss, 2015). In general, the more mature a baby is at birth, the better the chances of surviving and being healthy is. Ms. W’s case is no different; she is in preterm labor in the hospital, refusing treatment. Moreover, due to pregnancy and medication annoyance, Ms. W wants to discontinue all treatment, despite doctors’ orders. Ms. W’s potential risks of…

  • Essay On Premature Babies

    The Controversies of Extreme Preemies Of all the babies that are admitted to NICUs, prematurely born children seem to be the most controversial. The controversy begins because sometimes parents must make an agonizing ethical choice of whether or not to keep their child alive when machines or the only thing doing so. Every life is worth trying to save, but there may be a point, financially, physically, and mentally, when the survival of preemies may be doing more harm than good to both the child…

  • Exo And Endo-Norborneol Reaction Lab Report

    In the Acid-Catalyzed Hydration of norbornene, water and sulfuric acid were added to the C=C double bond to form norborneol. Sulfuric acid acted as a catalyst, where it was not consumed in the reaction and helped to propel the reaction forward, as it was vital in forming hydronium ion and breaking the double bond. Both the products endo-norborneol and exo-norborneol were synthesized; however regioselectivity and stereoselectivity played a role as to which product was more preferred and whether…

  • Lab Report Grignard Reagent

    Because the halide cannot be eliminated, the next best option is to minimize the amount of halide in the reaction. In this experiment, a small concentration of the halide is reacted with a high concentration of magnesium to ensure maximum contact between halides and magnesium. To do this, magnesium will be placed in the round bottom flask and then halides are slowly added. Another potential source of error is that Grignard reagents must be placed far away from water sources. If any water is…
