    Silicon tetrachloride gas reacts with solid magnesium metal producing solid silicon and solid magnesium chloride.

    SiCl₄ (g) + Mg (s) → Si (s) + MgCl₂ (s)

    Explanation:

    The reaction of SiCl₄ (g) with Mg (s) produce Si (s) and MgCl₂ (s). A way to write a word equation could be:

    Silicon tetrachloride gas reacts with solid magnesium metal producing solid silicon and solid magnesium chloride.

    The unbalanced formula equation including physical states is:

    SiCl₄ (g) + Mg (s) → Si (s) + MgCl₂ (s)
