Do you mean 'why do metals and nonmetals react together?' Well here's the answer for the Q I think you requested: Not all metals and nonmetals react. Some nonmetals like the nobles gases (elements like helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon) are very unreactive and won't react with metals. But some metals and nonmetals react to form an Ionic compound because they are more stable once reacted to form a product.
Metals loss electrons and nonmetals gain electrons.
nonmetals gain electronsmetals lose electrons
Metals and nonmetals most frequently react to form ionic network solids known as salts.
this makes ionic bonding.
Since potassium is a metal it reacts with nonmetals.
Elements from the boron, carbon, pnictogen, chalcogen and halogen families (groups 13 to 17) react with metals.
No metals react to form water. The two nonmetals that react to form water are hydrogen and oxygen.
nonmetals tend to gain electrons when they react
Metals lose electrons and an ionic bond is formed.
Nonmetals gain electrons.
Nonmetals or, in some cases, acids.
It is an electrostatic attraction between ions.
Mercury reacts with many nonmetals and forms amalgams with metals.
Yes it is called an ionic Compound. Cation plus anion.
Plutonium react with the majority of nonmetals; plutonium doesn't react with noble gases. Plutonium can form alloys with other metals.
Electronegativities of metals are very different: alkali metals are very reactive, platinum metals very unreactive. Metals react with nonmetals.
Atoms of non-metals generally react with atoms of metals by forming ionic compounds. This is achieved when non-metals gain electrons or a metal atom loses electrons.
No. Metals react with nonmetals or acids to produce salts. Salts can also form when acids react with bases.
no, nonmetals replace nonmetals and metals replace metals.
No, cesium is an alkali metal. Metals do not react with one another. Cesium reacts with nonmetals and acids to form salts.
Metals don't react with other metals, they react with nonmetals. If you had compounds of lead and compounds of zinc, they might react with each other, but lead and zinc do not react. They can be mixed together into an alloy, but that is not a chemical reaction.
yes almost anything can react with something else. it depends on your nonmetals
Metals: alkaline metals Nonmetals: halogens
Metals are not brittle, but nonmetals are. Metals are malleable and ductile, while nonmetals are not.
Two no metals combine to form covalent bond. They have weaker interaction.
