The description above is the definition of an ore.
Non metals aren't ductile because non metals lack all properties of metals and metals are ductile.
There are a number of ways in which a metal can be differientiate a metal from a non-metals, these involve contrasting the properties between metals and non-metals and testing them to distinguish them from one another. Some contrasting properties between metals and non-metals: 1.) Metals conduct electricity whereas non-metals do not. 2.) Metals are shiny whereas non-metals are not. 3.) Metals are malleable whereas non-metals are brittle. 4.) Metals often have a higher boiling/melting point than non-metals. 4.) Metals are hard whereas non metals are not.
Metals are sonorous but non metals are not sonorous. Metals have a shiny appearance but non metals do not have shiny appearance.
all are non metals
They are in between the metals and non metals
Metals, non-metals and transition metals.
The metals outnumber the non-metals by a good margin.
metalloids are neither metals nor non-metals......... they show properties intermediate between both metals and non-metals.
My opinion would be metal. Since non metals are brittle and dull, I disagree with the non-metals.
Yes, metals can be combined with non-metals.
The transition metals share the characteristics of both metals and non-metals.
5 properties of non-metal
there are 20 non-metals
There are many more metals on the periodic table than non-metals.
The most reactive non metals are Halogens which may combine most of the metals as well as non metals.
On a periodic table it is separated by color between metals, non-metals, and metaloids.
Metals, non metals and metaloids (which have some of the properties of both metals and non metals).
The properties of metalloids are in between of the properties of metals and non metals.
not all non metals are good insulators only the solid non-metals
Uses of metals and non-metals include: Metals Tin- preserving food Zinc- medical field Non metals Oxygen- Breathing Chlorine- Purifying water
