Caption: Sodium metal reacting with water. The reaction produces hydrogen gas and sodium hydroxide. The heat of the reaction melts the sodium, which forms a sphere. The indicator phenolphthalein has been added to the water, which turns pink due to the presence of the strongly alkaline sodium hydroxide.
