pure substance a substance in which there is only one type of particle includes elements and compounds
metalloids elements that have properties of both metals & nonmetals; sometimes refered to as semi conductors
metals elemnts that are shiny and are good conductors of thermal energy & electric currrent; most metals are malleable & ductile
periodic elements that are ordered
periodic law states that the chemical or physical properties of elements are periodic functions of their atomic numbers
period a horizontal row on the periodic table
group a column of elements on the periodic table
akali metals the elements in group 1 of the periodic table; they are the most reactive metals
