Caption: Cutting metallic sodium. Sodium (Na) is an alkali metal. It is soft enough to be cut with a knife. It reacts rapidly with water and oxygen in the air, therefore is usually kept in oil. Sodium occurs widely in nature, principally as sodium chloride (NaCl) in sea water and salt deposits. Sodium ions are essential to life.
