Name properties of Group 1?
-Alkali metals -Malleable -Conduct electricity -Low melting, point -Soft and easily cut -reactive readily form compound with non-metals
1 of 8
what happens when Group 1 metals oxidise?
Burn brightly in air
2 of 8
What is the reactivity trend in Group 1?
Reactivity increases down the group
3 of 8
What happens when Group 1 reacts with water?
a METAL HYDROXIDE and HYDROGEN is formed
4 of 8
Describe lithium reaction with water?
Bubbles fiercly
5 of 8
Describe Sodium reaction with water?
Melts into a ball and fizzes on the surface
6 of 8
Describe Potassium reaction with water?
Bursts into flames and flies on the surface
7 of 8
Why does reactivity decrease as you go down the Group?
Toms get larger because an extra electron shell is added.The forces of attraction decreases down the group.This makes the outer electron more likely to move to other atoms.
