In this video we’ll balance the equation Mg + S = MgS and provide the correct coefficients for each compound. To balance Mg + S = MgS you’ll need to be sure to count all of atoms on each side of the chemical equation.
Magnesium Sulfide contains magnesium metal cation with Mg+2 charge on it and nonmetal Sulfur anion with S−2 charge on it. Magnesium Sulfide Structural Formula.

Aqueous solution of magnesium sulfate is going to be slightly acidic, and there is no need to even go to the lab to test it. Mg SO4 is a salt formed by a weak base and a strong acid (both dibasic), so there is a two-step hydrolysis of magnesium cation.
Magnesium Sulfide has a formula of MgS. In order to bond ionically the charges must be equal and opposite. It will take one -2 sulfide ion to balance one +2 magnesium ion forming a magnesium sulfide molecule of MgS.
The most obvious similarity is that the result is the same: Both ionic and covalent bonding lead to the creation of stable molecules. For ionic bonding, valence electrons are gained or lost to form a charged ion, and in covalent bonding, the valence electrons are shared directly.
When a mass of magnesium is burned it increases in mass due to the oxygen combining with the molecules. The amount of mass increase is proportional and predictable if you know the mass of the starting magnesium.
