By speed, direction is changed and the faster the needle moves the greater the attraction force is.
As like electric charges repel and opposite charges attract each other in electricity, like magnetic poles repel and opposite magnetic poles attract.

...Reference: Meyer, E. (2010). Chemistry of hazardous materials (5th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall. 12) When relatively small amounts of magnesium burn, the fires are extinguished using commercially available dry powder. The MET-L-X extinguisher, or dry sand/earth can be very effective in the extinguishment of a small magnesium fire (Meyer, 2010). The MET-L-X dry powder extinguisher is mostly sodium chloride (Meyer, 2010). A magnesium fire might rekindle days after extinguishment as someone tries to cleanup or remove the residue with water because magnesium reacts with water. Magnesium reacts slowly with cold water and rapidly with worm and hot water producing hydrogen (Meyer, 2010). Magnesium fire can only be effectively extinguished or cleaned up if water is applied in a volume that totally deluges the fire and cools the metal rapidly or if rapid extinguishment is available immediately after ignition (Meyer, 2010). The process that is causing the magnesium to rekindle is: “magnesium + water = magnesium hydroxide + hydrogen” (Meyer, 2010, p.353). Magnesium can also be a reducing agent and as magnesium burns the 75% combines with air to form magnesium oxide [magnesium + oxygen = magnesium oxide] (Meyer, 2010). The remaining 25% when combined with air form magnesium nitride [magnesium + nitrogen = magnesium nitride] (Meyer, 2010). Reference: Meyer, E. (2010). Chemistry of hazardous materials (5th ed.).

Determination of Valency of Magnesium

...Title: Experiment 2 Determination of the valency of the magnesium Objective: -To study the quantitative relationship between the amount of reactants and products of a reaction. -A known starting mass of magnesium and the measured collection of hydrogen gas will be used to determine the reaction stoichiometry and the valency of magnesium. - To identify the unknown X value in the chemical equation between magnesium and hydrochloric acid - To determine the valency of magnesium Introduction: Stoichiometry is the study of the quantitative relationship between amounts of reactants and products of a reaction (that is, how many moles of A react with a given number of moles of B). In this section, a known starting mass of magnesium and the measured collection of hydrogen gas will be used to determine the reaction stoichiometry. Magnesium reacts with hydrochloric acid to form hydrogen gases. The aim of this experiment is to determine the value of x in the following equation: Mg + X HCI → MgCIX + H2 A known amount of magnesium is reacted with a large excess of HCl, and the volume of H2 evolved is measured. As HCl is in excess, all the magnesium will be consumed, and the yield of both MgClX and H2 is dependent on the amount of magnesium used. A comparison of the amount of hydrogen produced with the amount of magnesium consumed will enable the X value to be determined. Apparatus and Materials: Magnesium ribbon, 0.5M Hydrochloric acid, Burette (50 cm3), Pipette......

Experiment to Find the Amount of Water in a Hydrated Compound

...of water in a hydrated compound | Calculating Reacting Quantities and Formulae | | Contents Aim 2 Introduction 2 Hypothesis 3 Apparatus 3 Method 3 Results 4 Calculation 4 Conclusion 5 Evaluation 5 Bibliography 6 Aim The aim of this experiment is to find the number of molecules of water of crystallisation combined with one molecule of magnesium sulphate and to ultimately find the formula of the hydrated salt. Introduction Within crystals of certain salts, there are a fixed number of water molecules, combined chemically in a fixed proportion. When a salt crystallises from a solution, it forms hydrated salts which contain water molecules that are loosely bonded together. The name for this is the water of crystallisation or water of hydration. Magnesium sulphate contains seven molecules of water (H2O) for each formula unit of MgSO4 and can be written like this: - MgSO4.7H2O The dot shows the weak salt/chemical bond in the formula. To determine the formula of a hydrated salt, it must be heated so that the water of crystallisation evaporates. When magnesium sulphate has been heated, the water is removed to form an anhydrous salt. This can be reversed by adding water to the anhydrous salt to make it hydrated which will cause the water to reattach itself to the salt. Other substances that act similarly to hydrates, but have distinct individual characteristics are:- * Hygroscopic – substances that are able to absorb......

...Magnesium – WECKT den Turbo in DIR! Fitness Umschau Leser wissen mehr: Magnesium gilt als einer der ganz wichtigen Turbos für viele Prozesse im Körper. Umso schlimmer, wenn wir den Turbo nicht jederzeit aktivieren können, weil Magnesium fehlt. Wie kann das sein, wo doch die Schöpfung für uns genügend Magnesium bereithält. Denn die ersten 16 Kilometer unserer Erdschicht besteht zu fast 2 % aus Magnesium. Und es kommt noch besser: die Konzentration des Magnesiums in Meerwasser ist noch viel höher. Beim Eindunsten von 1 Liter Meerwasser bleiben nämlich immerhin 5,5 Gramm ! Magnesiumsalze übrig und das wiederum sind 15 % des gesamten Meersalzes von 1 Liter Meerwasser. Also müsste man meinen – Magnesium ist in Hülle und Fülle vorhanden. Weit gefehlt! Unsere Böden – zumindest die ersten Meter, in denen unsere Pflanzen sich ihre Mineralien herausholen - sind Magnesium verarmt durch die zu intensive Bewirtschaftung. Und das Meersalz ist meistens so aufbereitet, dass nur noch Spuren von Magnesium enthalten sind. So kommt es, dass im menschlichen Körper ein Magnesium Mangel auftritt - und zwar zunehmend häufig. Jeder hat in seinem Bekanntenkreis jemanden, der mit Muskelkrämpfen zu kämpfen hat. Er war beim Arzt und der bestätigt durch Laborchecks: „Calcium und Magnesium Werte perfekt“. Aus Verzweiflung nimmt der dann aber dennoch mal ein paar Magnesium Tabletten – und siehe - da es wird besser. An was liegt das? Die Antwort ist einfach! Wir messen das Magnesium dort,......

The Affects of Iron and Magnesium Deficiency on Lemma Minor's Photosynthetic Process

...The Affects of Iron and Magnesium Deficiency on Lemma minor’s Photosynthetic Process Lucia Aguilar INTRODUCTION Photosynthesis is the process in which plants can convert light energy into chemical energy to fulfill all of the functions of life. Iron and magnesium are nutrients that play an important role in photosynthesis. Deficiency in either of these nutrients will lead to a change in the photosynthetic rate of plants such as Lemma minor (duckweed). Magnesium is a mobile nutrient that affects older plants before it affects younger plants. Iron is a fairly immobile nutrient that causes chlorosis, the yellowing of leaves due to inadequate amounts of nutrients, in the younger plants (Campbell and Reece, 2005) In this experiment with variable deficiencies of magnesium and iron in Lemma minor, magnesium and iron nutrient concentrations were varied to see what affect the concentration variation, away from the required, had on the rate of photosynthesis of Lemma minor. It was hypothesized that a lack in either magnesium or iron would cause a disruption in the rate of photosynthesis. It was hypothesized that deficiency in magnesium would cause the Lemma minor to be unable to reproduce in number and therefore result in a lower dry mass. The cause of this would be the magnesium’s characteristics of being mobile. Because the magnesium is mobile, the photosynthetic properties of the older plants will be the first to be affected resulting in an inadequate amount of energy......

...Week #3 ATOMIC WEIGHT OF MAGNESIUM LAB Introduction: The purpose of this lab experiment is to determine the atomic weight of magnesium by measuring the amount of hydrogen gas evolved when hydrochloric acid reacts with magnesium. The reaction is as followed: Mg + 2HCL  H2 + Mg2+(aq) + 2Cl-(aq) This can be demonstrated by measuring the hydrogen gas evolved by performing a chemical experiment when hydrochloric acid reacts with the magnesium. The formulated reaction includes; Mg + 2HCl → H2 + Mg2+(aq) + 2Cl- (aq) The major findings contributing to the experiment is being able to determine and distinguish what moles have evolved thus being the hydrogen moles evolved allowing the magnesium to be consumed within the reaction. Procedure: 1st. Obtain a 600ml beaker, add 300ml of water 2nd. add 30ml of HCl (2M) to the beaker and stir 3rd. add 10mg of Magnesium metal to the beaker 4th. Allow hydrogen gas to evolve, all of the magnesium should be consumed. 6th. Record the amount of hydrogen gas evolved using the chemical property dialog. <Include information that the reader would need to repeat your experimental procedure. Do not include any observations or results in this section.> Observations and Results Moles of hydrogen evolved: 0.000829g (8.29 x 10-4)/ 0.000411 moles, (4.11 x 10-4) Moles of H2 evolved = moles of Mg consumed Atomic weight of Mg= /0.000411moles During my observation I noticed that when 10mg of magnesium metal was added to the......

Efficacy of Squash (Cucurbita Maxima D) Seed Oil Extract in Lowering Blood Glucose Levels

... To Qualibet Testing Services for providing their services for the extraction of our research components. Lastly, the researchers would like to praise the Lord God who provided the knowledge and guidance in the accomplishment of this project. ABSTRACT People’s recent eating lifestyle is significantly dependent on manufactured or processed foods, mostly filled with different additives, chemicals, and preservatives. Salts and sugars are among common additives to act as artificial flavorings and/or preservatives and these are one of the main reasons for having diabetes. The objective of this project is to find an alternative way to alleviate the symptoms of diabetes instead of using drugs like insulin. Squash seeds are rich in magnesium which regulates the blood sugar levels. It influences the activity and release of insulin. Rats were pre-conditioned for 14 days (2 weeks) and squash seeds were ground and extracted. Using a glucometer and glucose strips the initial blood glucose level of ten rats was measured, then injected with Alloxan and was measured again after 25 minutes. They were grouped into two with five rats each. One group was given 0.3 ml of squash seed extract while the other was given 0.4 ml. Blood glucose levels were again measured eight hours after administering the extracts. The process of data gathering and injection of squash seed extract was repeated seven times with eight hours between each interval. The analyzed data reveals that the third......

Antacid Paper

...Antacid Aluminum and Magnesium ANTACIDS THAT CONTAIN BOTH ALUMINUM AND MAGNESIUM SALTS ONCE SEEMED IDEAL BECAUSE ONE INGREDIENT COMPLEMENTED THE OTHER. ALUMINUM SALTS, WHICH DISSOLVE SLOWLY IN THE STOMACH, START TO WORK GRADUALLY BUT PROVIDE LONG-LASTING RELIEF. THEY ALSO CAUSE CONSTIPATION. MAGNESIUM SALTS ACT FAST AND NEUTRALIZE ACIDS EFFECTIVELY. THEY CAN ALSO ACT AS A LAXATIVE. ANTACIDS CONTAINING BOTH INGREDIENTS SHOULD PROVIDE QUICK, LONG-LASTING RELIEF WITH LESS RISK OF DIARRHEA OR CONSTIPATION. HOWEVER, THE LONG-TERM SAFETY OF ANTACIDS CONTAINING ALUMINUM HAS BEEN QUESTIONED. PROLONGED USE MAY WEAKEN BONES BY DEPLETING THE BODY OF PHOSPHORUS AND CALCIUM. Calcium Carbonate CALCIUM CARBONATE, OR CHALK, HAS BEEN A MAINSTAY OF ANTACIDS FOR A LONG TIME. CALCIUM CARBONATE ACTS FAST AND NEUTRALIZES ACIDS FOR A RELATIVELY LONG TIME. ALSO, IT IS AN INEXPENSIVE SOURCE OF CALCIUM; AMOUNTS RANGE FROM 500 TO 1000 MILLIGRAMS PER TABLET OR DOSE. HOWEVER, PEOPLE CAN OVERDOSE ON CALCIUM. THE MAXIMUM DAILY AMOUNT SHOULD NOT EXCEED 2000 MILLIGRAMS UNLESS A DOCTOR HAS DIRECTED OTHERWISE. Sodium Bicarbonate ONE OF THE LEAST EXPENSIVE AND MOST READILY AVAILABLE ANTACIDS IS NO FARTHER AWAY THAN THE KITCHEN CABINET. SODIUM BICARBONATE, OR BAKING SODA, NEUTRALIZES ACID QUICKLY. THE BAKING SODA BURP IS A SIGN THAT THIS ANTACID IS WORKING; THE BURP IS CAUSED BY RELEASE OF CARBON DIOXIDE GAS, WHICH OCCURS WHEN THE ANTACID NEUTRALIZES THE ACID. Although sodium bicarbonate may......

Chemistry: Magnesium Experiment

...During the experiment we encountered various problems. While weighing the magnesium, some of the strips fell and other strips fell off, therefore we had to weigh it again. When we did the first reaction, the final temperature of the reaction rose to only about 65C due to the fan and air conditioning in the area that we were working in. We consulted with the instructor, and he told us that the final temperature had to be at least 70C. We moved to another area where the fan was not blowing directly at us, and we did the first reaction again, finally obtaining the desired temperature. The next problems we encountered were in the calculations of the enthalpy for the reaction: Mg(s) + 1/2O2(g)  MgO(s) At first, we forgot to change the enthalpies from the reactions that we produced to kilo Joules. Then, we consulted the instructor with our final answer, he said that we had to divide the enthalpies we found from the reactions that we produced by .05 mol, in order to calculate it with the other enthalpies, because the unit for enthalpy is kJ/mol. Theoretical Value: Mg(s) + 1/2O2(g)  MgO(s) H = -601.8 kJ Experimental Value: Mg(s) + 1/2O2(g)  MgO(s) H = -578.4 kJ Our experimental value is -23.4 kJ more than the theoretical value. Compared to the theoretical value, our percent error is: Percent Error:  578.4 kJ - 601.8 kJ  x 100 % 601.8 kJ ...

Electrolytes

...positively charged and Ions that move to the positive which are called anions are negatively charged. They can be divided into acids, bases, and salts, because they all give ions when dissolved in water. Electrolytes are present in the human body, and the balance of the electrolytes in our bodies is essential for normal function of our cells and our organs. Electrolytes are important because they are what your cells, especially nerve, heart and muscle use to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses such as nerve impulses and muscle contractions across themselves and to other cells. The major electrolytes that are in our body are as follows: sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), chloride (Cl-), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), bicarbonate (HCO3-), phosphate (PO42-), sulfate (SO42-). Sodium is an abundant metallic element which is an important mineral for all living organisms. It is also widely used industrially to make an assortment of consumer goods. In a pure form, sodium is a soft, silvery gray, highly reactive metal. Pure sodium is usually stored in a nonreactive substance, as it oxidizes rapidly when exposed to air, quickly forming a thick coating. The soft metal appears in an abundance of compounds, such as sodium chloride, better known as salt. It also exists in high concentrations in seawater, and it is among the 10 most abundant minerals in the Earth's crust. The chemical element of sodium is also highly explosive when exposed to......
