When a material undergoes a chemical change or reaction, the chemical property is a trait or activity that can be observed. Chemical properties may be detected during or after the reaction since the arrangement of atoms inside a sample must be disrupted to analyse the property.
Let us see some of the chemical properties of Metals:
Reaction with Oxygen:
Iron on reaction with air and moisture
Metals react with oxygen to form metal oxides.
Reaction with Water:
Metals react with water to form metal hydroxide.
Reaction with Acid:
Metals react with acids to form salt and hydrogen gas.
Reaction with Base:
Metals react with bases to form salt and hydrogen gas.
More reactive metal replaces a less reactive metal from its compound.
