Why aluminium a highly reactive metal is used for making utensils for cooking?
Aluminium does not corrode easily. Even if it corrodes it reacts with oxygen to form a layer of aluminium oxide around it, which protects it from further corrosion.
Because it is highly reactive.
It means metals that are highly reactive. It's one of the most self-evident pieces of terminology in all of chemistry. Perhaps you were trying to ask which metals are considered "highly reactive", which is a separate question, and one that to some extent depends on your definitions, but would certainly at minimum include all the alkali metals, maybe the alkaline earth metals, and possibly a few selected others (aluminium, for example... we don't usually think… Read More
Sodium is a highly reactive alkali metal whereas aluminium is a less reactive metal in the boron group.
Aluminium is the third most abundant element on earth, it is highly reactive so is very rarely found as pure aluminium. It is found in concentrated levels in bauxite, which is mined and then refined into aluminium
Aluminum can be treated by anodization to create an inert hard protective layer over the surface. This layer can be either transparent or by the addition of tiny amounts of dopant elements during the process a wide range of colors can be produced. Even without anodization, a bare aluminum surface is so reactive that a layer of transparent aluminum oxide rapidly builds preventing further reaction. But do not use aluminum utensils with acidic foods or… Read More
Cerium is reactive but not highly reactive.
Aluminium (or aluminum) is a chemical element. The symbol for aluminium is Al, and its atomic number is 13. Aluminium is the most abundant metal. Aluminium is a very good conductor of electricity and heat. It is light and strong. It can be hammered into sheets (malleable) or pulled out into wires (ductile). It is a highly reactive metal, although it is corrosion resistant.
Aluminium is a highly reactive metal. it is therefore unlikely to occur naturally because it reacts with other elements and substances in the Earth to form compounds.
Sodium is highly reactive.
Oxygen is a highly reactive gas.
This is because metals like gold lie at the bottom in the activity series so they are less reactive and are found in the free state, whereas, metals like aluminium, zinc, etc. are found on the top of the activity series so they are highly reactive and are found in the form of compounds.
the highly reactive metal is potassium
Potassium is highly reactive, even explosive in some circumstances.
Nitrogen will react chemically, but it is not "highly reactive."
Sodium chloride is not highly reactive.
Aluminium is highly reactive and if any comes into contact with air it quickly forms aluminium oxide. This means that aluminium is always covered in aluminium oxide, insulating it from the environment. Even when scratched the aluminium reforms the hermetic seal. Hence aluminium's uses are for situations where a metal that does not rust is required but using painted iron is not practical. This includes window-frames and aeroplane fuselages.
The alkali metals are highly reactive with water.
Halogen group of elements is highly reactive.
Tin is highly reactive.
The word is "highly" reactive.
Tin is highly reactive.
No, argon is not a highly reactive gas. It is stable.
The power cables are mostly built with aluminum and not with sodium because sodium is highly reactive. Aluminium on the other hand is reactive as well but it only reacts one and them becomes aluminum oxide. Sodium keeps on reacting therefore is too dangerous.
Plutonium is a reactive chemical element.
The highly reactive non-metals are in the halogen group. They just need one more electron to fill the octet. Therefore they are highly reactive. For example fluorine and chlorine. And the highly reactive metals are placed in the first group (alkali metals). For example Sodium and potassium.
Halogens are highly reactive and readily form salts with metals.
highly reactive and is very corrosive tickle me
No. They are mildly reactive.
Carbon is considered highly reactive. This is due to the fact that it can react with many elements on Earth.
Chlorine is a highly reactive element
Being highly reactive these elements easily react and form compounds.
Highly reactive because they only have 7 electrons. They need 8 to be a stable element.
Yes, the Alkali metals are highly reactive. Use the related question (linked below) to learn why this is so.
phosphorous is a highly reactive nonmetal but fluorine is more reactive
phospohorous is the highly reactive non metal.
Sulfur itself is a non-reactive element... although sulfuric acid is highly reactive.
No; noble gases are highly unreactive.
if lithium loses one electron it attains the stable noble gas electron configuration of helium. hence it is highly reactive.
Yes, halogen family is considered highly reactive. It easily gains 1 electron to form anion.
Magnesium is one of the more reactive metals; it rarely exists in nature elementally.
because to be stable they need 8 atoms in outer energy level halogens need one so are highly reactive. alkali need 7 so are highly reactive( not as highly as halogens)
Chlorine is a Highly reactive element.
No, many are only fairly reactive, and others such as gold are almost inert. We arrange the common metals in a list which shows the order of reactivity, with the highly reactive ones at the top and the unreactive ones at the bottom. It's called the reactivity series.
No flourine is highly reactive, however flouride which is often mistaken for flourine is not very reactive
No, the alkali earth metals and halogens are the most reactive
Group 2 elements have 2 valence electrons and tend to lose 2 electrons to keep a fully filled outer shell. They are highly reactive, but not as reactive as group 1 elements.
Pure sodium is a highly reactive element. When placed in water, sodium will actually explode, producing flames and concussive forces.
Hydrogen is least reactive, and francium (radioactive) is highly reactive even with water.
