Describe and explain the trend in reactivity down the alkali metals group.

Reactivity increases down the group.

This is because the outer electron in each atom is further away from the nucleus as you go down the group and so the electrostatic forces between the nucleus and the outer electron are weaker. This means electrons are more easily given up in a reaction.
