Potassium is the most reactive. All of the elements in the first column of the Periodic Table are extremely reactive to water. These elements all have on more electron than the stable noble gas configuration (an octet in the valence shell), and so by getting rid of that extra valence electron, the element becomes much more stable. In contact with water, these elements will give this extra electron off to the water, forming hydroxide (OH-) and becoming a positive ion. For example, when you add potassium metal (K) to water, you will form the positive ion K+, which has the same electron configuration as argon, with a completely filled valence shell. The other metals listed will not react very quickly at all with water (unless it is very acidic water).
potassium magnesium doesn't exist. They are two separate "metals".
all are metals
You get a mixture of potassium and magnesium. They're metals; they don't react with each other.
These metals are very different.
Metals: potassium, magnesium, aluminum, calcium, iron (forming Fe2+ ions)
No. These are not heavy metals. They are salts of non heavy metals.
5 metals are:lithiummagnesiumcalciumheliumpotassium
No, Potassium is more reactive than magnesium. As a general rule, the alkali metals, those in the far left column of the periodic table, are the most reactive of all the metals.
Some of these metals are: Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Sodium, Potassium, ...
Group I metals will have the most violent reaction.
The most abundant metals are aluminum, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
Metals which are more reactive than aluminium. Eg= Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, etc
No. Magnesium is the more reactive metal, and it will remain an ion.
magnesium (in chlorophyll)
violent reaction happens
all the metals are reactive but the most reative metal is iron.
Any metal that is higher than magnesium in the reactivity series will react with magnesium nitrate, this is a displacement reaction.
Magnesium results in reaction with metals and oxygen. Therefore it stands to reason it reacts with magnesium oxide
Check out Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus Magnesium too once you get it started.
sodium potassium calcium zinc iron magnesium manganese
Very high. It's an alkali metal, in the most reactive metal family. Don't get me wrong, it's the weakest of the alkali metals, but more reactive than any other metals. For a VERY violent reaction, try potassium. For a VERY dangerous reaction, use pure francium.
Potassium, sodium, lithium, calcium, magnesium, aluminium and iron all react with air. The reaction creates an oxide. Iron reacts the slowest whereas aluminium reacts the fastest.
The activity series of metals goes something like this: Lithium Potassium Barium Calcium Sodium Magnesium Aluminum Zinc Iron Nickel Tin Lead Hydrogen Copper Mercury .............and so on..... ps, I might have left some elements out....can't remember them all... Since magnesium is higher in the reactivity series of metals, it can replace copper in a reaction. Copper is lower in the activity series of metals therefore can not replace magnesium.
The most abundant metals in the Earth crust are: aluminium, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, titanium, etc.
