What is a solid solution of metals?

A solid solution of metals is an alloy (the combination of metals may give the alloy properties that vary from the constituent metals).

Give one property that is typical of non metals?

Physical properties of nonmetals are generally just the opposite of metals so: - No luster (dull appearance) - Not ductile - Low density - Low melting point - Poor conductor - Not malleable The chemical properties of non metals just tend to gain electrons Hope that helps

What are properties on non metals and examples?

non metals give acidic oxides e.g S,Cetc

Why is rubidium malleable?

In metals, strong metallic bonds are present but the structure is not rigid. The strucutre allows an external force to cause the layers of particles to slide down one another. These give metals their malleable and ductile properties

What chemical properties do alkali metals have?

Alkali metals are powerful reducing agents, they give up one electron easily. They are extremely reactive.

What is the properties of magnets?

They are attracted to their opposite poles and certain metals such as iron. Their domains are aligned to give them magnetism.

What are metals and non metals give examples for metals and non metals?

Metals and non-metals: Metals have many properties like they are lusterous and are hard. They are also very good conductors of heat and electricity. They are most of the time magnetic also. But this is not for every metal for-example Lithium is soft. Examples of metals: Cobalt, iron, copper, plutonium.... Non-metals also have many properties as well. Their properties are pretty much the opposite of metals. They are poor conductors. Examples of non-metals: Oxygen, hydrogen, neon....... Any other questions just type them out and I'll be here. What are properties of the Metalloids? Are non-meatals with metallic properties, or metals with out metallic properties.

What is a metal that contains other elements to give it specific properties?

A metal that contains other elements to give it specific properties is called an Alloy. Many metals can contain other elements to give the metal specific properties. Steel is an alloy of Iron and carbon. Stainless steels contain various other alloying elements such as Chromium and Nickel.

What is a common property of metals?

There are more than 80 metals recognized and placed in the periodic table. They have an immense diversity of their chemical and physical properties. Two of the qualities that all metals have are, conductivity of electricity and heat. These behaviour can be understood by their metallic bonding structure which contain 'free electrons'. If we discuss about the metals a little further, almost all of the metals are solids at room temperature. The only exception to this statement is mercury. Metals are usually can be bent and can be extracted into sheets or wires. And metals give a sonorous sound when it is collided. The exceptions for these statements are the alkali metals and mercury which is normally found as a liquid. Generally it is said that metals show basic characteristics as they do react with acids to liberate hydrogen gas. But some metals including aluminium, zinc, tin and lead react with alkali too, and it violates the statement if it is mentioned for ALL metals.

What is a good website to compare non-metals and metals?

Metals have a characteristic silvery, shiny appearance, they are electrically conductive, flexible (except for mercury which is liquid), and they engage in chemical reactions in which they are electron donors, forming positive ions. Non-metals are less shiny, generally not good electrical conductors, not as flexible, and they engage in chemical reactions in which they receive electrons, forming negative ions. Some non-metals such as carbon can either give or receive electrons, but even when they give electrons they do not do so as readily as metals do.
