Question

Write scientific reason.

Sodium metal is kept in kerosene.

Solution

Sodium metal is kept in kerosene because sodium is very reactive metal. It is kept in kerosene to prevent it from coming in contact with oxygen and moisture. If this happens, it will react with the moisture present in air and form Sodium hydroxide. This is a strongly exothermic reaction, and lot of heat is generated. It will result out in the form of fire.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
