Does being able to react with hot water take more metal reactivity than being able to react with HCl? To me, it seems like a metal would need to be more reactive to be able to react with hot water since HCl is a very strong acid and so should theoretically be able to react with more metals, but I am not so sure.
Edit: Context: (Question) Al reacts with hot water (boiling pt), Mg does not react with hot water but reacts with HCl, which is more reactive? According to the reactivity trends, Mg is more reactive than Al, but according to the information given in the question, it seems logical that Al is more reactive since it reacts with hot water but Mg does not. So is Mg or Al more reactive if we were to assume that everything in the question were true?
