Finding the Formula of Magnesium Oxide

Rather than simply matching up the ionic charges on paper, this exercise gets chemists into the lab to determine the chemical formula for magnesium oxide! If a know amount of magnesium is used, an oxidation reaction results in this compound and the specific formula can be determined. This is an outstanding lab activity for your chemistry class when they are learning about chemical compounds.
