Magnesium: atomic number 12

error in units

The units of resistivity don't come out right.

10^-8 Ohm * m
m Ohm * cm

the 'm' should be a 'mu', but unfortunately they both look the same in the latin alphabet.


Magnesium reaction

I know that Magnesium is so reactive that when it burns, it reacts with the oxygen and nitrogen in the air. What would the name of the compound produced in this reaction be?

Help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks.
