  • metals also react with water
    • the reaction of metals with water also show the reactivity of metals. this is the basic reaction:
    • 1. very reactive metals like potassium, sodium, lithium and calcium will all react vigorously with water.
    • 2. less reactive metals like magnesium, zinc and iron won't react much with cold water, but they will react with steam.
      • you could show this in the lab using this experiment:
    • 3. copper won't react with either water or steam.
