The reaction between sodium and ethanol

Details of the reaction

If a small piece of sodium is dropped into some ethanol, it reacts steadily to give off bubbles of hydrogen gas and leaves a colourless solution of sodium ethoxide, CH3CH2ONa. Sodium ethoxide is known as an alkoxide.

Dear Kajal,
          If you drop small amount of sodium in ethanol then vigorously you observed that bubbles are coming and it is hydrogen gas.

Hydrogen gas will be involved in this reaction.. we can also text it by taking a match stick to the place from where hydrogen gas is evolved and when we put the matchstick on the gas then it will produce pop sound hence it is prove that hydrogen gas is evolved.

when sodium is dropped into ethanol rapid effervescence is observed.this is hydrogrn gas.\
2C2H5OH + 2Na = C2H5O-Na+ H2

when sodium is dropped in solution of ethanol following reaction takes place-;                                                               CH3CH2OH + Na ---- CH3CH2ONA +H2.                                                                                                                Bubbles of  Hydrogen gas is formed but it evaporates vigorusly and a colourleass solution of sodium ethoxide is left behind.
