Question #9ab33

1 Answer

Aluminum will react with steam, but not with boiling water.


So I guess it depends on what you consider hot water to be.

If you think hot water must still be a liquid (boiling hot water) than you would say that aluminum does not react with hot water. This is how I would answer...

This video performs some activity series experiments using copper, zinc and magnesium. Aluminum is below magnesium on the activity series but is above both zinc and copper.


Magnesium will react with boiling hot water. This reaction is shown in the video below.

Hope this helps!
