What happens if ferrous metals are left outside?
There is only one ferrous metal-iron- but there are many ferrous alloys. Iron and the iron in most of the alloys will oxidize quickly-that is, rust.
How are the elements ordered on the periodic table left to right in terms of metals nonmetals and metals?
On the Periodic Table, there are 5 types of metal that can all be found to the left of the non-metal/metal "staircase" divide. The metals groups are as follows (left to right): Alkali Metals Alkaline Earth Metals Transition Metals (Inc. Lanthanides and Actinides) Post-Transition Metals Metalloids After the Metalloids is the "Staircase" divide between the metals and non-metals. The transition metals are the biggest area of metals as they include the Lanthanides and Actinides.
