    What is the ionic equation of the reaction of calcium with an excess of water.
    Is it
    Ca(s) + 2H2O --> Ca2+ + 2OH- +H2

    Beacause it forms calcium hydroxide not it split up. so it looks like this: Ca(s) + 2H2O(l) --> Ca(OH)2(aq) + H2(g)

    Apart from the missing state symbols it was correct...

    Ca(s) + 2H2O(l) --> Ca2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) +H2(g)

    But, why resurrect the dead?
