Because many elements are metals and no one can explain. Why don't you ask God?

Pewter is not an element, it is an alloy of several metals, so it does not appear on the periodic table of the elements.

There are a large number of metals present on periodic table. So they are most abundant.

they sure can. if it is not on the periodic table, that means it is not a pure element, so any metals you are wondering about can be looked up on the periodic table to see if they are pure.

Halogens in the periodic table are non metals. Many non metals are not conductors. So halogens cant conduct energy.

upper right hand corner of the periodic table so the most reactive would be fluorine

Rephrase the question so it makes sense, okay?

They both are metals. Have a similar number of valence electrons. So they are near each other on the periodic table.

An anion, simply carries across the atom numbers, in greater size. But that is only with the metals, with non-metals, the numbers are arranged by how less the number is. So the higher the atom number, the further across will the anion be on the Periodic table but with non-metals, the less the atom number the closer to the metal section will the anion be on the Periodic table.

yes there are because there on the periodic table so therefore its a element

Mendeleev's table was useful because it indentifies the elements, and classifies them as metals, non metals or metalloids, as well as noble gases.

Depending on how you veiw the Periodic Table, then Groups IVA to VIA or groups 14 to 16 contain both metals and non metals. Groups IIIA (13) and VIIA (17) contain metals/metalloid and non metal/metalloid so wouldn't count in the context of your question.

Most non-metals are found on the right side of the periodic table. On the extreme right however the last column is of noble gases. So we could say non-metals are positioned between metals and noble gases.

The periodic table is organized not only by atomic number, but also electron configuration. The electrons in aluminum are most similar to gallium and boron, which is why aluminum is put where it is. Also, zinc, gallium and indium are metals, so aluminum is with a couple of the other metals.

All the elements in group 2 are metals, so there are no non-metals in group 2 of the periodic table.

It's the transition metals. It starts with 3d, then 4 and so on

The periodic table contains the metallic elements in the left side and the non metals to the right. The metals are tending to give away electrons whereas the non metals prefer to withdraw them. So, the electronegativity of elements increase from the left to the right. Fluorine, one of the rightmost elements have the highest electronegativity among all the elements in the periodic table..

The periodic table is arranged so what is increasing.

This was done only save space. Because there are so many elements in each Group (Group IIIB)--numbering 14 each--the Periodic Table would be twice as wide than as we know it.

Do you mean Alkali Earth metals? If so they are the second column to the left of the chart.

The elements present in group 3-12 in the periodic table in periods 3,4 and 5 are called the transition metals.They are called so because their position in the periodic table is between the s-block and the p-block elements

the periodic table of elements as suggested by it's name consists only of elements. Steel is not an element but is made out of many elements. so it is not in the periodic table.

so we know how reactive a metal is and how many metals have been discoed so far. and also so we now how to wright a chemical reaction and how to avid making a chemical reaction

You are most likely talking about the unreactive gases in the periodic table of elements. The periodic table of elements only contain elements (cannot be broken down into simpler substances).In the periodic table, we have metals, non-metals and metalloids. Metals are usually solids in room temperature (other than mercury). So the gases are in the non-metals section.An unreactive gas would most commonly be found in group 18 (last column) on the periodic table of elements. These are the noble gases, and have 8 electrons on their outer shell, so they are very stable. Since they are stable, they are unreactive. They rarely react with other chemicals.So the unreactive gases - group 18.(noble gases)

Nonmetals are found on the right hand side of the periodic table beside noble gases.If you're looking at the periodic table of elements, imagine that there are steps with Boron (B) being on the highest step. Then on the next step below that is Silicon (Si) and so on until Astatine (At). Everything to the right of those steps are non-metals. Everything to the left are metals.

well there is metals meatlloids nonmetals gases solids liquids synthetically prepared element so i guess 7????
