2Mg+O2 gives 2MgO. In this reaction, explain the experiment that you conduct to decide the product as a basic oxide.

The experiment that is conducted is as follows:

  • Take MgO and dissolve it in water.
  • When a red litmus paper is dipped in it, it turns blue. This indicates that it is either alkaline or basic in nature.
