Fireworks which give off bright flashes of white light often contain magnesium metal.When the magnesium burns in the presence of oxygen, it forms solid magnesium oxide, and emits a bright white light.Write a complete, balanced equation for this reaction.
A)Mg(s) + O(g)  MgO(s)
B)4Mg(s) + O2(g)  2Mg2O(s)
C)2Mg(s) + O2(g)  2MgO(s)
D)Mg(s) + O2(g)  MgO2(s)
E)Mg(s) + O2(g)  MgO(s)
