This is not true, the equation for this is a synthesis reaction, of a active metal and water is this for sodium: 2Na+2H20= H2 +2NaOH or sodium hydroxide
look no further :3
Salt or NaCl consists of :Sodium- the metal and Chlorine- and fortunately you can separate these but this is the only practical way of getting pure sodium metal
if you are able to melt the salt into a liquid and then run electricity through it you can break the salt down into sodium and chlorine so i would advise doing this in a well ventilated area as chlorine is a toxic gas
if you plan no making alot consider investing in making what is know as a Downs Cell
if you plan on making a little you could probably find a basic video on electrolysis on the internet just replace the solution with molten salt if you do this you should be good :3
i would also like to add this process is nothing more than you couldn't learn in a high school chemistry book so don't flip out
P.S. be careful
is there a way to make liquid sodium to replicate an experiment that replicates the Earth's magnetic field and how it acts. You do this by creating a steel ball with liquid sodium between it and an inner rotating steel ball.
