most of the time it has a negative charge when its in a ionic bond. In a covalent bond it only bonds with other nonmetals. in a ionic bond it only bonds with a metal. hope it helps a little.
There are three characteristics of most nonmetals. They are more malleable and ductile than metals, they have ionization energies, and thy are poor conductors.
They have luster, are good conductors of heat and electricity, are ductile and malleable.
Nonmetals are generally the opposite of metals. They are very brittle, are not good conductors of heat and electricity, and are dull. Most nonmetals are gases at room temperature, which means they have low boiling points. They have lower densities than nonmetals.
not good conductors, they don't have a metalic luster, dull (not shiny)
- not lustrous (no shine) - brittle (breaks easily) - not malleable
An element that has characteristics of both metals and nonmetals is a metalloid.
true: metalloids are elements that have characteristics of both metals and nonmetals.
(4)they are brittle and lack metallic luster.
Nonmetals are found to the right.
Halogens are the most reactive nonmetals
The three most general elemental groups are nonmetals, semimetals, and metals. The characteristics you've described fit the "metals" group of elements.
Metals and Nonmetals have specific characteristics. Two characteristics of Nonmetals are typically brittle and do not shape easily, and they do not conduct heat or electricity well.
The elements known as metalloids share characteristics with both metals and nonmetals. These include boron, arsenic, antimony, germanium and silicon.
1. They are not metal. 2. In liquid or gas, the particles can move a lot more than in a solid metal. 3. Usually non metals are more malleable and ductile.
Nonmetals tend to be dull, are bad conductors, and are brittle, meaning they do not bend very well without breaking.
Nonmetals are usually dull and brittle. They are also nonconductors or very poor conductors. Furthermore, nonmetals are good insulators. Most nonmetals will easily bond to metals with the exception of the noble, or inert, gases, which are non-reactive in nature.
Most nonmetals cannot conduct electricity, and they are usually dull in color. They have low melting points and can be gasses or liquids.
The elements that have some of the characteristics of metals and some of nonmetals are called metalloids.
