Thanks for the feedback!
It is a Metal
ITS A NON METAL It's a gas, one of the so called noble gases because of its reluctance to form compounds with other elements at STP. Other noble gases at STP include helium, a…rgon, krypton, xenon and radon
As the word "metallic" might suggest, metallic bonding occurs in metals.
its a metal ok
Barium is a metal.
Potassium is a metal ... by Jay Jay =)
it's a metal
greater conductivity and higher melting points than nonmetals. Or D, because your looking at the STAR review packet. :)
Metals are the elements which have tendency to loose electrons from their valence shells and form cations. example: copper, gold, silver, aluminum, zinc, lead, etc..... Nonme…tals are the elements which have tendency to gain electrons in their valence shells and form anions. example: hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon, sulphur, phosphorous , chlorine, bromine, iodine etc........ non metels The nonmetals are located on the upper right side of the periodic table. Nonmetals are separated from metals by a line that cuts diagonally through the region of the periodic table containing elements with partially filled p orbitals. Metals Most elements are metals. On the periodic table, metals are separated from nonmetals by a zig-zag line stepping through carbon, phosphorus, selenium, iodine and radon.
Silicon is a semimetal.
Yes. Only in the metal state.
Metals cannot be either non-metal or metal hence the designation. The elements that possess properties of both metals and non-metals are called metalloids. The metalloids are …boron, silicon, arsenic, tellurium, germanium, antimony, and polonium.
If chlorine nonmetal has seven valence electrons while barium metal has two to donate how many chlorine atoms are needed to form an ionic bond with barium?
Two atoms of chlorine are needed, one to accept each of the barium electrons in an ionic compound, barium chloride (BaCl2).
A metal that reacts with another metal would be a metal, not a nonmetal. Metals don't generally chemically react with one another, but they can be made to form metal mixtures …called alloys.
