Lets say I have a metal oxide and I put it in water, and it reacts. As far as I know, only metal oxides from group 1 and 2 react in water, making hydroxides.
Now here is my question: If I add HCl to the hydroxide, can I be sure that it will make a salt and water? Or are my previous assumptions wrong?
An example that works would be Sodium Oxide which reacted with water and then with HCl produces NaCl and water. Does it work the same way with all metals from this group though?
