Metals & Non-Metals

Properties of metals

Physical Properties of Metals strong, malleable, ductile, sonorous, shiny, good conductors of heat & electricity, high mpts and bpts, high density
Why are metals strong? atomic density=stable and close together
Why are metals malleable? layers of metal atoms can be shifted without breaking metallic bonds
Why are metals ductile? layers of metal atoms can be shifted as well
Why are metals sonorous? delocalized electrons sending waves of kinetic energy, little energy lost
Why are metals shiny? vibrating delocalized electrons contact with light
Why are metals good conductors of heat & electricity delocalized electrons able to carry the energy and the flow of charge
Why do metals have mpts and bpts? strong metallic bonds
Why do metals have high density? strong metallic bonds with ‘sea’ of delocalized electrons, closely packed
Chemical Properties of Metals react with oxygen to form oxides (which are bases) which then form salts and water when reacting with acids & when they react, they form positive ions
