Magnesium has a common oxidation number of 2. Using this, the chemical formula of all the required compounds can be determined:

The formula of magnesium chloride is: MgCl2

The formula of magnesium oxide is: MgO

The formula of magnesium sulfide is: MgS

The formula of magnesium nitrate is: Mg(NO3)2

The formula of magnesium sulfate is: MgSO4

The formula of magnesium hydroxide is: Mg(OH)2

The formula of magnesium carbonate is: MgCO3

Magnesium chloride, oxide, iodide, sulfide, nitrate, sulfate, hydroxide & carbonate

It would be easier for your to solve this is you try to break it down:

  • Magnesium = Mg +2
  • chloride = Cl
  • Magnesium chloride MgCl2
  1. Magnesium: Mg (+2)
  2. Oxide = 0 (+2)
  3. Magnesium Oxide = MgO
  • Magnesium = Mg (+2)
  • iodide = I
  • Magnesium Iodide = MgI2
  1. Magnesium = Mg ( +2)
  2. \Sulfate = SO4 (-2)
  3. Magnesium sulfate = MgSO4

and so on, make sure to break it down to make it easier.
