Properties of Metals
Metals have
luster. This
means they are

Ductile
metals can be
drawn into wire.

Malleable
metals can

Properties of Metals
Metals have a high melting point. They
are also very dense.
Properties of Metals
Conductors
Metals are
good
conductors of
electricity and
heat
Properties of Metals
A chemical property
of metal is its
reaction with
water and oxygen.

Properties of Nonmetals
Nonmetals do
not have
luster; they are
dull.
Properties of Nonmetals
Brittle
Nonmetals are
brittle so they
break easily.

Properties of Nonmetals
Nonmetals
have low
density.
Properties of Nonmetals
They also have a
low melting point.
This is why they
are poor
conductors of
heat and
electricity.
Metalloids
Propertiesof Metalloids
Metalloids can be found clustered around the
dark zig-zag line that separates metals and
nonmetals.
Propertiesof Metalloids
Metalloids (metal-
like) have
properties of both
metals and
nonmetals.
Propertiesof Metalloids
Metalloids are solids
that can be
shiny or dull.
Propertiesof Metalloids
They conduct
electricity and
heat better than
nonmetals but not
as well as metals.
Propertiesof Metalloids
Metalloids are
malleable and
ductile

Properties of Nonmetals
Nonmetals have 5 or more valence
electrons and therefore usually gain
electrons in chemical bonds.

Metals 1

  1. 1. The Periodic Table of Elements
  2. 2. Elements Science has come along way since Aristotle’s theory of Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. Scientists have identified 92 Natural elements, and created about 28 others.
  3. 3. Elements The elements, alone or in combinations, make up our bodies, our world, our sun, and in fact, the entire universe.
  4. 4. Periodic Table A great deal of information about an element can be gathered from its position on the period table. Understanding the organization and plan of the periodic table will help you obtain basic information about each of the 118 known elements.
  5. 5. Periodic Table
  6. 6. Metals
  7. 7. Properties of Metals Metals appear to the leftof the dark ziz-zag line on the periodic table. Most metals are solidat room temperature.
  8. 8. Properties of Metals Metals have luster. This means they are shiny
  9. 9. Properties of Metals Ductile metals can be drawn into wire.
  10. 10. Properties of Metals Malleable metals can be hammered into sheets
  11. 11. Properties of Metals Metals have a high melting point. They are also very dense.
  12. 12. Properties of Metals Conductors Metals are good conductors of electricity and heat
  13. 13. Properties of Metals A chemical property of metal is its reaction with water and oxygen. This results in corrosion and rust.
  14. 14. Nonmetals
  15. 15. Properties of Nonmetals Nonmetals occur to the right of the dark zig-zag on the periodic table. Although Hydro gen is in family 1, it is also a nonmetal. Many nonmetals are gases at room temperature.
  16. 16. Properties of Nonmetals Nonmetals do not have luster; they are dull.
  17. 17. Properties of Nonmetals Brittle Nonmetals are brittle so they break easily. This means nonmetals ARE NOT ductileor malleable.
  18. 18. Properties of Nonmetals Nonmetals have low density.
  19. 19. Properties of Nonmetals They also have a low melting point. This is why they are poor conductors of heat and electricity.
  20. 20. Metalloids
  21. 21. Propertiesof Metalloids Metalloids can be found clustered around the dark zig-zag line that separates metals and nonmetals.
  22. 22. Propertiesof Metalloids Metalloids (metal- like) have properties of both metals and nonmetals.
  23. 23. Propertiesof Metalloids Metalloids are solids that can be shiny or dull.
  24. 24. Propertiesof Metalloids They conduct electricity and heat better than nonmetals but not as well as metals.
  25. 25. Propertiesof Metalloids Metalloids are malleable and ductile
  26. 26. Families Families in the periodic table share chemical properties because all elements in a family have the same number of valence electrons This means that all elements in a family bond with other atoms in a similar way.
  27. 27. Properties of Metals Most metals have 3 or less valence electrons and therefore are likely to lose these electrons in chemical bonds.
  28. 28. Properties of Nonmetals Nonmetals have 5 or more valence electrons and therefore usually gain electrons in chemical bonds.
