Write a balanced chemical symbol equation for a reaction between Potassium and Water, including state symbols?

2K(s) + 2H2O(l) = 2KOH(aq) + H2(g)

Potassium (K) is a group 1 metal, which is a solid.

Water (H2O) reacts with Potassium to form Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) and Hydrogen (H2).

Hydrogen exists naturally as a diatomic molecule and is usually a gas at room temperature, so it is written as H2(g).
