Types of matter?

(Alkali metals, alkali earth metals, transition metals, other metals, other non-metals, halogens, noble gasses, rare earth metals.) ==> these are not 'types of matter' they are just the names of the categories we put the elements in.

Why are alkali earth metals called alkali earth metals?

Alkali earth metals are named after their oxides, alkaline earth.

Is hydrogen a alkali metal?

No, hydrogen is a nonmetal. It is grouped with the alkali metals because it has a similar outer shell electron configuration as they do. Hydrogen is something of an oddball among elements. It is rather unique, but share some characteristics with both the halogens and the alkali metals. When the periodic table is divided into groups (noble gasses, halogens, alkali metals, etc.) hydrogen is usually put in its own group.

Alkali metals are the metals in family/group I.Lithium, sodium, potassium, Rubidium, Cesium, Francium are Alkali metals.

What are some characteristics of alkali metals?

Alkali Metals: the alkali metals are found in the first group of the periodic table, Alkali metals are very reactive metals and they are not freely in their nature, alkali metals have one electron in their outermost shell. therefore alkali metals are ready to loose that one electron for bonding with other elements, alkali metals are good conductor of electricity and heat. they are soft in nature than other metals.The Alkali Metals are:lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium cesium, francium
