4

Metal reacting with water

Metal + water --> metal hydroxide + hydrogen

5

Metal reacting with oxygen

Metal + oxygen --> metal oxide

6

Potassium reacting with water

Potassium + water --> potassium hydroxide + water
Fizzes violently and produces a lilac flame.

7

Sodium reacting with water

Sodium + water --> sodium hydroxide + water
Fizzes and sometimes produces an orange flame.

8

Lithium reacting with water

Lithium + water --> lithium hydroxide + water
Sort of fizzes and if it could it would produce a red flame.
