Must know where the metals are in the periodic table Should know how many elements are metals Could know the properties of metals and non-metals
Metals are Shiny and bright High melting point (all solids except one) Ring when hit (sonorous) Tough and strong Can be beaten into sheets (malleable) Conduct heat and electricity Can be pulled into wires (ductile) Heavy
Usually dull Light Do not ring when hit (not sonorous) Low melting point (mostly gases) Poor conductors of heat and electricity Cannot be drawn into wires (not ductile) Cannot be beaten into sheets (not malleable) Not tough and strong Non-metals are
