    yes, there will be an explosion .

    when sodium or potassium is added to water,

    a small fire can be observed. so when acid is used instead

    of water, a lot of hydrogen will be release so that an explosion

    occur.

    It is because Na & K is very reactive.(ps個reactivity勁)

    你可以睇返reactivity series,書都有講Na or K + dilute acids=>explosive reaction

    做多d past paper喇,你會發現自己不知不覺下知道不少chem的野
