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.
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.
