#### Question

What happens when calcium reacts with water? Write the chemical equation of the reaction of calcium with eater.

#### Solution

When calcium reacts with water, it forms calcium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. Due to the formation of hydrogen bubbles that stick to the surface of calcium, it starts floating on water.
Ca(s) + 2H2O(l) → Ca(OH)2(aq) +  H2(g)
