Reaction: if sodium is thrown into water

Sodium is a ductile metal of silver color, rather electrically conductive and thermally conductive. It is used in industry as a strong reducing agent, as well as for the production of batteries.

The video demonstrates that sodium reacts very violently with water. A slice of sodium thrown into the water ignites due to abundant heat, and begins to melt. A chemical reaction proceeds with the release of gaseous hydrogen, which can explode, so the interaction of metallic sodium with water is extremely dangerous and can cause serious injuries. Burning sodium causes the release of sodium oxide, peroxide and hydroxide, which have a strong corrosive effect, so do not try to repeat this experiment yourself!
