Can nonmetals replace other nonmetals in single replacement reactions?

Yes they can replace other non metals in a single replacement. Fluorine is the most reactive then Chlorine then Bromine then Iodine then Astatine.


How do metals and nonmetals compare with respect to electron affinity?

The defining characteristic of metals and nonmetals is that metals have a much lower electron affinity than nonmetals do. Metals tend to lose electrons when they undergo a chemical reaction, while nonmetals tend to gain electrons when they undergo a chemical reaction.


Why are nonmetals better oxidizers than metals?

Nonmetals have a higher effective nuclear charge, therefore they are more likely to gain electrons in a chemical reaction and metals are more likely to give electrons up. This makes nonmetals the better oxidezer


What is a single reaction a dublle replacement reaction?

You can identify a single replacement reaction because the reactants are a compound + an element. The products of a single replacement reaction are found by switching the element with another element in the compound. Metals switch with metals, non-metals switch with non-metals, and the most reactive element is always in the compound. A double replacement reaction can be identified because the reactants are always compound +compound. The products would also be two compounds but the elements would switch.


Do metaloids contain metals and nonmetals?

Metalloids do not contain either metals or nonmetals. They are elements that have properties of both metals and metalloids, and are found between the metals and nonmetals on the periodic table.

How can a table listing of metals in an activity series be useful for prending whether a chemical reaction will occur?

An activity series of metals can predict whether a replacement (displacement) reaction will occur. You use the activity series to compare the reactivity of different metals in order to predict whether a replacement reaction will occur. A metal that is above another metal in the series will replace that metal in a compound.

What is the most reactive group of a metals and nonmetals?

Metals: alkaline metals Nonmetals: halogens


Are metals and non metals brittle?

Metals are not brittle, but nonmetals are. Metals are malleable and ductile, while nonmetals are not.

How are metals and nonmetals arranged in the periodic table?

The metals are on the left and the nonmetals are on the right.


What elements have properties of metals and nonmetals?

Metalloids have properties of metals and nonmetals.


What comes first the metals or nonmetals?

nonmetals

How are metalloids differents from metals and nonmetals?

because metalloids usually have properties that are similar to metals and nonmetals
