Alkali metals and water react in a violent manner; they form strong bases and hydrogen gas and can result in an explosion.

All alkali metals react violently with water forming a hydroxide and hydrogen.


Alkali metals such as sodium, potassium



Alkali metals reacts violently with water forming a hydroxide and hydrogen; alkali earth metals react with water but no so violent.Other metals doesn't generally react with water at room temperature.



because they produce(form)an alkali when they react with water.


alkali metals react violently in cold water


Yes, reacting with water alkali metals form alkaline solutions (alkali metals hydroxides dissolved in water).


Alkali metals and alkali earth metals react with water; the other metals doesn't react.

Yes, Potassium is an alkali metals, along with its brothers, Lithium, Sodium, Rubidium Cesium, and Francium. They are very reactive when exposed to air or water.


When alkali metals react with water they produce an alkali (basic) solution. No because they form basic oxides and they neutralise acids


A strong reaction with the formation of a hydroxide - MeOH.


For example hydroxides of alkali metals are very soluble in water.


Group 1 elements are known as alkali metals because they react with water to form alkali (or bases).


what happens when they are exposed to water


Generally no, but alkali and alkali earths metals can react with water.



Improve Alkali Metal + Water ------> Alkali Hydroxide + Hydrogen Alkali Metal Oxide + Water ------> Alkali Hydroxide + Water


yes an alkali metal reacts in water as a transition metal does not


These metal on reacting with water form alkaline (water soluble base). that is the reason they are known as alkali metals.


The alkali (hydroxides) of alkali metals are soluble in water.These alkalis are LiOH, NaOH, KOH, RbOH, CsOH.


Alkali metals are soft, low density metals that react vigorously with water to form hydrogen. They only have one electron in it's outer shell. Alkali-earth metals are low density hard metals that react less vigorously with water. They have two electrons in the outer shell.


Group 1 elements are known as alkali metals because they react with water to form alkali (or bases).


1) Alkali metals are stored in oil to minimise reaction with oxygen or water, it's a physical barrier towards air but the alkali metals still gradually corrode a traces of oxygen and water diffuse through. The reaction of alkali metals with water gets more violent for elements lower in the group e.g. (Li < Na < K < Rb < Cs). Adding them to water will cause an explosion due to the extremely exothermic nature of reaction, and can be rather dangerous and some alkali metals can react violently with just moisture in the air. Most of the alkali metals float on the top of the water, depending on how big the alkali metal is determines the size of the reaction this is because they're less dense that water itself and also during the reaction the alkali metals give of hydrogen gas which is quite flammable. Alkali Metal + Water » Metallic Hydroxide + Hydrogen The francium would be like any other alkali metal, it would be very violent like the other alkali metals.
