Elements

QuestionAnswer
Where are the metals located on the periodic table? Metals are located to the left of the staircase of metalloids.
Where are the metalloids located on the periodic table? Metalloids are located along the stair-step line between metals and nonmetals.
Where are the nonmetals located on the periodic table? Nonmetals are located to the right of the staircase of metalloids.
At room temperature, what state of matter are most metals? solid
Which elements are considered semi-conductors – materials that conduct electricity at high temperatures, but not at low temperatures? Metalloids
At room temperature, what state of matter are most nonmetals? Most nonmetals are gas. A few nonmetals are solid.
Materials made from nonmetals are often used to cover electrical wires. Why do you think that might be the case? Nonmetals are insulators and do not conduct electricity. They would protect anyone who touched the wires from being shocked.
What does it mean if an element is ductile? It means it is a metal and can be pulled into thin wires.
Why would you use a metal to make a wire to conduct electricity? Metals are ductile and conduct electricity.
Which elements are good conductors of heat and electricity? Metals are good conductors of heat and electricity.
Why are metals, nonmetals, and metalloids on the periodic table? They are elements with specific properties.
Why would you use an element on the left side of the periodic table as a building material? The elements on the left side are metals. They are mostly solids and malleable.
Describe the luster of metals. Metals are shiny.
Why can you use some metals to make wire? They are ductile.
Which elements are poor conductors of heat and electricity? nonmetals
Describe the luster of the solid nonmetals. Solid nonmetals are dull.
Which elements can be hammered into different shapes? Metals
Which solid elements tend to be brittle? nonmetals
Which elements have some properties in common with metals and some properties in common with nonmetals? Metalloids
Which elements have properties that enable them to be good insulators of heat and electricity? Nonmetals are good insulators.
Why would you not use an element on the right side of the periodic table as a building material? They are nonmetals. The solid ones are brittle. The others are gas.
How can the location of an element on the periodic table provide information about it? It can help you learn about the element’s physical and chemical properties and understand how it can best be used.
