Why are group 2 elements called transition elements?
The group 2 elements are called the alkaline earth metals. The transition metals are in groups 3 - 12. They are transition metals because they have electrons in their d sublevels. ...
Why are alkali metals more reactive than transition metals?
Groups 3-12 do not have individual names. Instead, all of these groups are called transition metals. The atoms of transition metals do not give away their electrons as easily as atoms of the Group 1 and Group 2 metals do. So, transition metals are less reactive than alkali metals and alkaline-earth metals are. ...
Asked in Alkaline Earths
What are alkaline metal an alkaline earth metal and a transition metal?
Alkaline metals are group 1 elements Alkaline earth metals are group 2 elements Transition metals are group 3 to group 12 elements ...
What are the difference between the alkali metals and alkali earth metals and transition metals?
Alkali metals are group 1 elements and have 1 valence electron. Alkaline earth metals are group 2 elements and have 2 valence electrons. Transition metals are group 3 to group 12 elements. ...
Asked in Periodic Table
How do transition metals properties compare with those of elements farther to the left?
The chemical reactivity of transition metals is generally less than that of metals to its left (group 1 and group 2 metals). However, transition metals can exhibit various oxidation states and hence form more number of compounds than group 1 and group 2 elements. ...
Asked in Science
Are there more metals or non-metals?
There are more metals than non-metals. This occurs because of the transition metals group. When looking at a group on the periodic table the transition metals makes up a large portion because they are the atoms that take use of the the d orbital for electrons. The d orbital has room for 10 electrons and therefore there is a large number of transition metals per group. ...
Asked in Periodic Table
How do you ust the periodic table to identify alkali metals alkaline earth metals transition metals halogens and noble gases?
Alkali metals are present in group1 , alkaline earth metals in group-2, transition metals in group 3-12 , halogens in group-17 and noble gases in group-18. ...
Asked in Metalloids
Which contains the most elements metals transition metals or metalloids?
Im pretty sure that there are more transition metals than metals or metalloids Logically, though, it is impossible for there to be more transition metals than metals! The latest IUPAC periodic table recognises 114 elements. Borders are a little blurred but there are about 18 non-metals, about 6 metalloids, and about 90 metals. Of the ~90 metals, 38 are transition metals, 30 are lanthanoids and actinoids, and the remaining ~22 are "main group" metals. On this basis of classification, transition metals are the largest single...
