Click on the flashcard to see the answer


What is a metal?

A metal is a solid material that is typically hard, shiny, malleable, ductile, and a good conductor of heat and electricity.

What is a non-metal?

A non-metal is an element or substance that is not a metal, typically having low conductivity for heat and electricity.

What are some properties of metals?

Properties of metals include high electrical and thermal conductivity, luster, malleability, ductility, and the ability to form positive ions.

What are some properties of non-metals?

Properties of non-metals include low electrical and thermal conductivity, dull appearance, brittleness, and the ability to form negative ions.

Give an example of a metal.

One example of a metal is iron (Fe).

Give an example of a non-metal.

One example of a non-metal is oxygen (O).

What are metalloids?

Metalloids are elements that have properties of both metals and non-metals.

What are some examples of metalloids?

Examples of metalloids include silicon (Si), germanium (Ge), and arsenic (As).

Which group of elements in the periodic table are metals?

The majority of elements in the periodic table are metals. They are located on the left side and middle of the periodic table.

Which group of elements in the periodic table are non-metals?

Non-metals are primarily located on the right side of the periodic table.

What is the reactivity of metals?

Metals have varying degrees of reactivity. Some react vigorously with acids and water, while others are less reactive.

What is the reactivity of non-metals?

Non-metals generally have low reactivity, but some non-metals like fluorine (F) can be highly reactive.

What is the state of metals at room temperature?

Many metals are solid at room temperature, with exceptions like mercury (Hg) and gallium (Ga) which are liquid.

What is the state of non-metals at room temperature?

Non-metals can exist in different states at room temperature. For example, oxygen (O2) is a gas, while sulfur (S) is a solid.

What are the uses of metals?

Metals have various uses such as in construction, electrical wiring, transportation, and manufacturing of tools and machinery.
