Properties of Metals

PropertyExplaination
heaviness Metals have large atoms that are tightly packed. (Some metals may be less or more heavy relative to other metals).
High melting points Strength of metallic bonding
Electrical conductivity Because the free electrons move so easily they conduct electricity easily
Thermal conductivity Because the free electrons move so easily they conduct heat easily
Density Overall metals are dense because the atoms are tightly packed together. Some metals may be less or more dense relative to other metals.
Solids The metal structure has strong bonds called metallic bonding
Malleability Metallic bonding means that metal atoms can slide easily over each other
Lustre The free electrons can reflect light
