Homework Help: CHEM

Posted by Marrion on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 2:57am.

I posted a question earlier, and i'm still abit confused. What is the reaction between potassium and aqueous sodium chloride? I was told that the products are KOH, H2, and KCl.

But shouldn't the reaction be a displacement reaction? Since Potassium is more reactive than sodium? So shouldn't the potassium have displaced the Sodium from the sodium chloride? What happened to the sodium in that reaction? I think i understand that the potassium will react with the water to form KOH and H2, but where did the sodium go to?

How do i write the chemical equation?

K (s) + NaCl (aq) ---> ???

Please help, thanks!
