    Metals when react with water leads to the formation of metal hydroxide and liberates hydrogen.

    metals + water —–> metal hydroxide + hydrogen

    Some metals readily react with water, such as-

    metals such as Li, Na, K, Ba, Ca react with water to give metal hydroxide and hydrogen even at room temperature.

    Mg, Al, Zn, Fe reacts with steam at high temperatures to give hydroxide and hydrogen

    Metals such as Gold, Silver do not give hydrogen at any temperatures with water.
