Patterns of Chemical Reactivity (Section)
Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction that occurs when:
(a) Mg(s) reacts with Cl2(g);
(b) barium carbonate decomposes into barium oxide and carbon dioxide gas when heated;
(c) the hydrocarbon styrene, C8H8(l), is combusted in air;
(d) dimethylether, CH3OCH3(g), is combusted in air.
