Yes. This is due to the fact that their valence shells are adding electrons, coming closer to having an octet. The halogens in group 17/VIIA are the most reactive nonmetals because they have seven valence electrons and readily react in order gain the eighth valence electron, which gives them an octet like the nearest noble gas. It takes much less energy to gain one electron or share one electron, than it does to gain or share two or more electrons.

No, metals become less reactive as you move from left to right across the periodic table.


The more to the right of the periodic table the more reactive Only for nonmetals, for metals the most reactive are to the left and have 1 valence electron. Nonmetals have many, 6 or 7, valence electrons that make them very reactive.


The metals are on the left and the nonmetals are on the right.


No, because metals are on the left side of the Periodic Table. Therefore, they are reactive. Nonmetals, on the left side of the Periodic Table, are less reactive, because they have more valence electrons.


In general: Low-Left (Cs) and Up-right (F) are the most reactive elements.


Moving from left to right on the periodic table, the elements generall go from metal to nonmetals.


No. In general, metals become more reactive as you move from right to left along a row in the periodic chart. They also are generally more reactive as you move down a column. Non-metals however are a different story. Non-metals tend to be more reactive as you move from left to right along a row or as you move up a column. Disregarding, of course, the last column of the periodic chart (VIII) as the noble gases are non-reactive (inert).


metals are on the left nonmetals are on the right and the metalloids are in the middle. Here is a saying to help you remember metals on the left, nonmetals on the right the metalloids keep them from getting in a fight


The reactivity is increasing, from left to right - for example halogens.


The metals are located in the left going toward the right. The nonmetals are located in the right going down the periodic table.


Yes aluminum is less reactive than magnesium it is less reactive because as you read left to right on the periodic table the elements become less reactive because they get more electrons on their valence shells hope this helps you


Elements become less reactive as you move from left to right across the periodic table. This is due to how many valence electrons (outer-most electrons) the element has; the less valence electrons, the more reactive the element.

The two types of elements from left to right are metals and nonmetals . By:lhin velasco


the nonmetals are located in the right of the periodic table and only one (hydrogen) is located in the upper left.!(:


Do you mean "location on the periodic table"? Hydrogen is on the left, the rest of the nonmetals are on the right.



Elements on the left side are metals and those on the right side are nonmetals.


The most reactive chemicals are on the left side of the periodic table through to the least reactive on the right side.


Nonmetals are located on the right side of the periodic table. Hydrogen is the only nonmetal that can be on the left side of the periodic table.


Metals are on the left side of the periodic table; nonmetals are in the right side of the periodic table.


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.


The group furthest to the left are alkalie metals which are the most reactive/least stable. As you go towards the right they become more stable. Noble gases on the far right are the least reactive and most stable.


Metalloids bridge between the metals on the left and the nonmetals on the right.


The periodicity of nonmetals is that reactivity increases from left to right across a period, through group 17, the halogens. As you move down a group, reactivity decreases. Fluorine is the most reactive element.
