(i) When sodium metal dropped into water it reacts rapidly and forms sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas.

the chemical reaction is - 2Na+2H_{2}O\rightarrow 2NaOH +H_{2}

(ii) sodium metal heated in the free supply of water-

 Sodium reacts vigorously with oxygen and forming sodium peroxides.

Reaction- 2Na+O_{2}\rightarrow Na_{2}O_{2}

(iii) when sodium peroxide dissolved in water it hydrolysed and produce sodium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide.

Reaction-  Na_{2}O_{2}+2H_{2}O\rightarrow 2NaOH+H_{2}O_{2}
