why magnesium is not react with cold water
Asked by acharjee.rinki2016 | 27 Feb, 2019, 02:22: AM
Magnesium reacts slowly in water but reacts vigorously with steam. The reason why Magnesium doesn't really react with cold water is that it becomes coated with Magnesium hydroxide which is insoluble, so it prevents water coming into contact with Magnesium.
