Alkali metals are from Group 1 of the Periodic Table and have a single electron in their outer shell. Alkaline-Earth metals are in group 2 of the periodic table and have 2 electrons in their outer shell.
calcium is an alkaline earth metal thus has different characteristics to the alkali metals.
alkali earth metals are resistant to fire.
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.
Alkali earth metals are named after their oxides, alkaline earth.
Alkali metals are soft, low density metals that react vigorously with water to form hydrogen. They only have one electron in it's outer shell. Alkali-earth metals are low density hard metals that react less vigorously with water. They have two electrons in the outer shell.
The alkali earth metals act in a similar but slightly less reactive way to alkali metals
there are alkali metals and alkali earth metals but there is no such thing as an element called alkali...
alkali metals have +1 charge on them.
No,it is not a alkali earth metal.It is a alkali metal.
No. The alkali and alkaline earth metals are very reactive.
Alkali metals are more reactive.
neither. it is a noble gas
The alkali metals, alkali earth metals, and transition metals.
Alkali metals are more reactive
yes, the metals are next to each other
The alkali metals have a valence of 1 while the alkaline earth metals have a valence of 2. The alkali metals are generally lighter, softer, more reactive, and have lower melting points than the alkaline earth metals.
The alkali earth metals are in the 2nd group, or column of the periodic table. They are bordered by the alkali metals on the left and the transition metals on the right.
The alkali metals are more reactive.
Alkaline earth metals do not exist , only alkali earth metals
Alkali metals are more reactive than alkaline earth metals.
Alkali metals, alkali earth metals, transition metals, etc...
Alkali earth metals react with oxygen to form basic oxides.
