Every element has a different atomic number.Further, they differ in their physical properties.

Some are metals, some non-metals and some metalloids.

Some exist in solid state, some liquid and some gaseous.

They are classified and ordered by there differnt atomic number, which is equal to their (different) proton numbers.
