No. It goes from metals on the left and middle, to metalloids towards the right, and on the very right, non metals.

Metallic character increases from top to bottom and decreases from left to right with respect to position in the periodic table

more metallic moving from left to right

They increase by one for each element. The number of protons is the same as the atomic number. The protons increase by one moving left to right.

Atomic radius increases down a group. Metallic character also increases down the group.

The electronegativity increases as you move bottom to top, and left to right on the periodic table. Why? Because you are moving towards Fluorine, which is the most electronegative element.

It increases moving down a group because as you move down a group the number of energy levels increase as you go down and so the number of electrons increase causing the atomic radius to increase.

Atomic radius decreases while moving left to right in the periodic table due to increase in the magnitude of nuclear charge.

Valence electrons increase in number on moving from left to right on the periodic table. another question might be

In a metallic bond, atoms of the metal are surrounded by a constantly moving "sea of electrons." This moving sea of electrons enables the metal to conduct electricity.

trueThe free-moving electrons in metals account does hold many of the properties of metals. There are three properties.

The answer you are probably looking for is the periodic table, which arranges the elements. The periodic table can help predict properties of an element based on the element's location. All the elements in a veritcle collum (also known as family or group) will have the same number of valence electrons and thus behave in a similar manner. Elements can also be compared to one another on the horizontal axis(the period). i.e. moving from left to right elements become less metalic and do not exibit metallic properties as stongly. General location on the table can tell you what type of element it is; metal, nonmetal, metalloid/semimetal. or the # of protons and electrons in the element, the atomic mass.

As you go down the first group (or any group), you are adding protons and electrons. As you add more and more protons, the effective nuclear charge will increase.

All metals are highly reactive because of their properties. As you move left on a period while moving down you move close to Francium (most-metallic). Since group 1 is the most farthest left group, it is the most metallic, therefore the most reactive.

by slaiding friction increase

When going left to right in a given row of the periodic table the atomic radius increases. When moving top to bottom of a given column the atomic radius increases.

The moving electrons maintain the metallic bonds regardless of how the staple is shaped. It will be bent without being broken.

An increase in temperature results in an increase in the speed at which particles are moving. In return, the high speed of moving particles lead to an increased rate of diffusion.

When moving down a column in the periodic table, except for the first period of column 18, the number of valence electrons remains unchanged.

3 types of motion:constant means the object is always moving.periodic means that the object is moving back and forth.variable means that the object can change its speed and direction.examples:constant - the earth moving around the sun.periodic - a swing moving back and forth.variable - a car driving then turning or slowing down.

they become more reactive since you are moving from left to right on the periodic table, the elements in group 17 are the most reactive.
