Potassium + Oxygen = Potassium Oxide

Francium is a very rare metal that would oxidize very quickly. The word equation is francium + oxygen -> francium hydroxide + hydrogen gas.

Metallic copper reacts with an excess of oxygen to form copper(II) oxide or with a deficiency of oxygen to form copper(I) oxide.

4Fe(s) + 3O2(g) + 2H2O(l) => 4FeO(OH)(s)The word equation is elemental iron plus oxygen plus water produces rust.

Potassium + Chlorine --> Potassium Chloride (potassium plus chlorine arrow potassium chloride)

These reactions are:4 Cu(I) + O2 = 2 Cu2O2 Cu(II) + O2 = 2 CuO

There is no word equation for making oxygen. Oxygen is a natural element and cannot therefore be a created substance.

potassium plus water gives potassium hydroxide plus hydrogen gas

metal+water= hydrogen+ metal hydroxide metal+ oxygen= metal oxide metal+ acid= hydrogen+ salt

Equation: H2SO4 + 2KOH = K2SO4 + 2H2O In words: Sulphuric acid and potassium hydroxide yield potassium sulfate and water.

Potassium plus Water gives Potassium Hydroxide plus Hydrogen
