Hello there! I did a chemistry project a few weeks ago for school, and I demonstrated to my fellow classmates a reaction of sodium and water. I understand why these two react with each other, but I decided to investigate a little further. My friends and I set up different substances, most of which we use every day. Examples included hot sauce, milk, eggs, apple juice, and many more. With some of these liquids, the sodium reacted way more than any of us would have thought. I was just wondering why it reacted with these things so aggressively. Can anyone tell me if it reacted with the other chemicals in each of these liquids (and why), or was it just the water in each of them?
