#1

Explain the reactions of different metals with hot water, cold water and steam. Give one example with a proper balanced chemical equation. Name two metals which do not react with any form of water.


#2

Reaction of metal with water
(i) With cold water

(ii) With hot water

(iii) With steam hydroxide

• The order of increasing reactivity of these metals is Fe< Mg < Na
• Gold and silver do not react with any form of water.
