CHEM - Group 1 Alkali Metals
Chemistry, alkali metals, group 1 - IGCSE | IBDP | DSE | GCE | IAL | AP Chemistry
Reactions with Water
Alkali metals react with water to produce alkaline metal hydroxide and hydrogen gas.
For example, in the reaction between sodium and water,
2Na(s) + 2H2O(l) → 2NaOH(aq) + H2(g)
Reaction becomes more vigorous as you go down the group 👇:
For IGCSE Chemistry, you should be able to explain the trend of reactivity of alkali metals
