The sodium burns, spilting the water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen itself then burns with explosive force.

Sodium explodes when added to water because it is an alkaline metal.

Sodium is an unstable element which reacts violently when in contact with water. Sodium added to water can result in explosions.

Sodium chloride is dissociated in water in Na+ and Cl-. Sodium is an alkali metal.

it depends what metal it is, if it is a reactive metal like potassium or sodium it will effervesce (bubble) and create a metal hydroxide and hydrogen. if it is a less reactive metal it will create a metal oxide and hydrogen (zinc, etc)

When water is added to a metal namely SnI4, nothing will happen. Both water and metal will remain at its normal state.

The sodium chloride will dissolve as it does in ordinary water.

Sodium chloride is very soluble in water; these crystals will be dissolved.

metal + water = metal hydroxide + hydrogen For example: Sodium + Water = Sodium Hydroxide + hydrogen

The metal that burns in water is sodium.

Sodium metal reacts violently with water, which would no be a good thing to happen inside your mouth.

It forms NaOH... And its reacts with explosion. .depends on quantity of Na

No. Sodium is an element whereas water is a compound.

no way! sodium reacts violently with water

Water and sodium metal are reactants to produce sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. H2O + Na ==> NaOH + H2 !! VERY dangerous !! Sodium Metal and Water

You want something that reacts with water and is exothermic. An example would be an alkali metal (such as sodium), or perhaps oxygen salts that react with water

Sodium metal produces sodium hydroxide in water which is a very strong alkali

Sodium ion exist in water as the product of a dissociation; sodium (metal) react violently with water

The methoxide ion would steal a hydrogen ion from water, forming sodium hydroxide and methanol. CH3ONa + H2O --> CH3OH + NaOH

No sodium is an extremely reactive metal that reacts violently with water. Sodium is in fact one of only two metals that is less dense than water, meaning that it can float on water. Whether a metal is underwater or not does not change its identity.

The metal Sodium, as sea water contains salt which is NaCl (Sodium chloride).

Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is a strongly alkaline compound which when added to water will raise its pH.

No, salt water is sodium chloride dissolved in water. Sodium is a soft, silvery, and dangerously reactive metal.

You will obtain a sodium chloride solution in water.
