Have you checked what your book states about chemical properties of Al?

What kind of reaction do you expect? What should be the electrical charge associated with the Al before and after the reaction? What happened to the "K" on the products side of the reaction? What should its charge be? What kind of reactions are you studying in your current book's section?
