What are the special characteristic of metal and non metal?
Metals are often hard. They conduct both heat and electricity. They often have high densities, high melting points, and high boiling points. And always loose electrons when bonding. Non-metals are the opposite of all the above characteristics.
The density is a physical characteristic of all materials.
Malleable is being able to be hammered into thin sheets, a characteristic only found in metals.
what is the characteristic of metal
The characteristic of non-metals are- 1. Non-metals are gases or solids at room temperature, except bromine, which is liquid at room temperature. 2. Non-metal solids are generally not as hard as metals and have low tensile strengths. However diamond, an allotrope of carbon, is very hard. 3. They do not have luster. However, silicon, iodine and graphite have metallic lustre.
The special properties of graphite are defined by its unique nature of being metal and non-metal. Graphite also has the ability to conduct electricity among other things.
Non-Metal :) Non-Metal :)
the special characteristic of starfish are they have an Exoskeleton and Radial symmetry
The main characteristic is it is not a metal, so it doesn't conduct electricity, isn't shiny, and doesn't form cations. The non metals are at the right hand side of the periodic table and include group 17 along with C, N, P, O, and S. The other elements in group 14, 15 and 16 are the metalloids, which are have intermediate properties.
H - Non (non-metal) He -Non Li - metal Be - metal B - metalloid C - Non N - Non O - Non F - Non Ne -Non Na -Metal Mg - Metal Al - Metal Si - metalloid P - non S - Non Cl - Non Ar - Non K - Metal Ca - Metal
It is a non-metal.
It is standard when writing a chemical equation that the metal goes before the metal. In this occasion, however, there is two non-metals. But, Hydrogen has a special ability to sometimes be a metal, or sometimes be a non-metal. And this case, it takes the metal identity and comes in first, ahead of oxygen.
its a non metal
IONIC=metal + non-metal COVALENT=non-metal + non-metal *you can use you periodic table to figure out if a compound is and metal or non-metal.
A non-metal plus a non-metal usually (but not always) produces a covalent bond.
A non metal and non metal would be a covalent (or molecular) bond.
Nitrogen is a non-metal.
Oxygon is a non-metal
It is a non-metal.
hydrogen and helium are the special elements because the electron in the outer most shell of the hydrogen is 1 but it is not a metal it is a non metal whereas in helium the electron in the outer most shell are 2 but it is not a metal there fore it is a noble gas.
Metal: Mercury Non-Metal: Oxygen
it is always a non-metal
it's a non-metal
it is neither a metal or a non metal it is a salt
Non-metal. (Hexane - C6H14)
Wood is non-metal.
Yes, it is a non-metal.
Argon is a non-metal.
non metal liquid
it is a non metal
