(ii) Carbon forms two oxides namely CO2 and CO, where masses of oxygen

which combine with a fixed mass of carbon are in the simple ratio 2:1.

(iii) When magnesium burns in oxygen, the amount of magnesium taken

for the reaction is equal to the amount of magnesium in magnesium

oxide formed.

(iv) At constant temperature and pressure, 200 mL of hydrogen will combine
