Sodium metal reacts rapidly with water to form a colourless basic solution of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and hydrogen gas (H2). The reaction continues even when the solution becomes basic. The resulting solution is basic because of the dissolved hydroxide. The reaction is exothermic.

When the sodium hits the water it produces a hydrogen gas. As it heats up and goes faster and faster it burns and can create an explosion

sodium in water is a spectacular thing
