Elements that have some characteristics of a metal and some characteristics of a nonmetal are called semimetals or metalloids.
Germanium is neither. It is a metalliod, because it has some properties of a metal and some properties of a nonmetal. However, the substance of germanium is a metal.
Some properties of Nonmetal Element is gaseous at room temperature and nonconductor.
Yes if it has some of the same characteristics of metals but also the same as non metals, then it is a metalloid.
A metallod has some properties of a metal and some properties of a nonmetal.
No, hydrogen is considered to be strictly a non-metal. Although it can be considered as a group 1 element due to some of its characteristics.
Metalloids have characteristics of both metals and non-metals. They are located on the staircase of the periodic table. Some examples of metalloids are boron, silicon, arsenic, etc.
Some of both.
No, a base is a substance that raises pH when added to water. While some bases do indeed release metal and nonmetal ions, many do not, and many that release metal/nonmetal ions are not bases.
Normally, the compound which is from metal and nonmetal element is ionic compound. (because metal likes to give electron and nonmetal likes to get electron, so they become ionic compound) and the compound which is from nonmetal and nonmetal element is covalent compound. (because nonmetal likes to get electron, so they just share valance electrons each other) but some of metal-nonmetal compound is covalent compound (but not much in fact) esp. Be e.g. BeCl2 and the Hg(I) ion is in the form Hg2 2+ (which means the Hg+ forms the covalent bond each other and becomes 2+ charge) for example: mercury(I) chloride is Hg2Cl2 and mercury(II) chloride is HgCl2
Chlorine is a nonmetal. It is only one electron short of a noble gas electron configuration and is much more likely to abstract an electron from some other element than to donate one to some other element.
There are a number of characteristics that makes gold unique as an element. Gold is a soft metal, it is ductile and it is extremely dense in terms of weight among others.
They are both considered to be Metalloids meaning they have some metal characteristics and some non-metal characteristics.
Which element? Most elements are metals, but some are nonmetals and semimetals.
A heavy element is an element that based on the amount of metal that is in the element. Some can base the description of a heavier metal on the number of atoms but it is the amount of metal in the element.
No: Iodine is not a metal at all, but a nonmetal. It is not necessarily radioactive, but has some radioactive isotopes.
it is physical because when the metal melts it is still metal. it doesn't change to a new subtance.--------------------------------------A metal is a chemical element, not a property; but in some situations chemist use the expression metallic characteristics (or properties).
It is metal.
Granite is a mineral, and is not assigned status as a metal or nonmetal. The metal/nonmetal characteristic is usually assigned to a chemical element rather than to chemical compounds or, as is the case with granite, groups of these compounds.There will be some metals in all granite. Though this mineral is largly made of silicon dioxide (SiO2), a number of metal compounds will be present in small amounts within the crystaline structure. Aluminum, potassium, sodium, iron and other metals, and even traces of uranium, can be found in granite.
Arsenic is technically not a metal. It is considered a metalloid. Some variants of arsenic can be more metal-like than others.
nitrogen dioxide is nonmetal. it is a gas which has some what heavier than air
Metals are a class of elements. A pure metal is an element. Some metals are alloys, which mean they have more than one metal or element in them. The metal bronze is made of two elements, the metal tin and the metal copper.
