Lithium, potassium and sodium are all metals which react with cold water. Metals form a reactivity series which can be used to predict their reactions. The most reactive metals, such as sodium, will react with cold water to produce hydrogen and the metal hydroxide.

See how much you know from your Science lessons with this quiz.

1.
Metals are .......
good conductors of heat and electricity
magnetic materials
poor conductors of heat and electricity
usually liquids or gasses at room temperature
2.
A metal which has been used for pipes and in coins because it has little reaction with air or water is .......
copper
iron
sodium
tin
3.
Zinc is more reactive than copper, so can take its place in a reaction with copper sulfate. Which is the correct word equation?
Zinc + copper + sulfate → zinc sulfate + copper
Zinc + copper sulfate → zinc + sulfate + copper
Zinc + copper sulfate → zinc sulfate + copper
Zinc sulfate + copper → zinc + copper sulfate
4.
Metal carbonates react with acids to produce carbon dioxide gas. It can be tested for using .......
a glowing splint
a lighted splint
limewater
universal indicator
The limewater turns cloudy (milky)
5.
If a metal reacts with a dilute acid, the products will be .......
a salt and carbon dioxide gas
a salt and hydrogen gas
a salt and water
hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide gas
The salt depends on the acid used

Reactive metals can take the place of a less reactive metal in some reactions. This is known as .......
combination
displacement
neutralisation
oxidation

2
5
7
They are called the alkali metals
8.

Burning
Color change
Nothing
Some bubbles of gas
9.
Magnesium ribbon reacts with acid. It will react more vigorously if .......
less magnesium is added
more acid is added
