Calcium is a metallic element that burns when introduced to oxygen to form calcium oxide. The red and white flame burns intensely, resulting in a white powder. More »

Oxygen is a highly reactive and very abundant element that reacts with many things, including, as the University of California, Davis' ChemWiki points out, the reaction it has with hydrogen, which creates water. This ele... More »

Magnesium has a very energetic combustion reaction with oxygen, where two atoms of magnesium bond with one molecule of oxygen gas to form two molecules of magnesium oxide. This reaction is extremely exothermic, releasing... More »

Calcium carbonate is made up of three elements: calcium, carbon and oxygen. This combination is a chemical compound, which is written out as CaCO3. It has one molecule of calcium, one of carbon and three of oxygen. More »

Calcium carbonate produces a weak chemical reaction with vinegar, which is an acetic acid, by releasing carbon dioxide. A simple experiment that demonstrates the reaction is to soak an egg, which has a calcium carbonate ... More »

The compound barium chloride burns green at wavelength of 589 nanometers which is in the middle of the visible light spectrum. Color is produced by heating metal salts such as barium chloride, calcium salts or sodium sal... More »

Calcium carbonate degrades into calcium oxide and calcium dioxide when it is heated high enough. If the heating process is done in water, the calcium oxide will react with the water and form calcium hydroxide. Calcium ca... More »
