Look at columns 14 & 15
Column 14: (Group IVA)
Carbon is a non-metal
Silicone and Germanium are semi-metals.
Tin & Lead are metals.
Column 15: (Group VA)
Nitrogen and Phosphorous are non-metals.
Arsenic and Antimony are semi-metals
Bismuth is a metal.
There are many more than just two families... There are, from left to right, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, calcogens, halogens, and noble gases. Along with several others you've never heard of because you obviously know nothing about chemistry.
Okay... you probably wouldn't even ask this question if you knew nothing about chemistry so don't feel bad. but in general there aren't 2 families. there are actually 3. Metals, nonmetals, metalloids and unknown.
Metals: conduct electricity & heat. shiny, hard.
Nonmetals: dull, do not conduct heat and electricity well, brittle.
Metalloids: have both metal and non metal qualities.
Hope i answered your question!!!

Alkali metals and alkaline earth metals are two families of metals. They are not the only two. As an example, the transition elements are different and they are all metals.
Noble Gases (group 18) and Halogens (group 17) are two of the non-metal families.
alkali metals (group 1 elements)
alkaline earth metals (group 2 elements)
Ferrous and Non-Ferrous
Non-metals are located on the right side. Transitional metals in the middle area.
metals, metalloids, and non-metalsThese are roughly grouped from left to right on the periodic table. The metals are on the left, the non-metals are on the right, and the metalloids are inbetween. On many student periodic tables there is a dark, staircase-looking line that marks which elements are metalloids.
Non-metals are the elements in groups 14-16 of the periodic table. The nonmetals are Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Selenium. The first two columns, the middle 9 columns except La and Ac on the periodic table are metals.
Metalloids are the border lines between the metals and the nonmetals in the Periodic Table.
It is not true; many metals are very reactive and several nonmetals are nonreactive.
The 'p' block elements of periodic table.
The alkali metals, the alkaline earth metals, the transition metals, metalloids, nonmetals, including the halogens and the Nobel gasses.A simplified list including general groups and families of elements.
Well, several are, and from left to right. Alkali metals Alkaline earth metals. Transition metals. Metaloids. Nonmetals. Halogens. Nobel gasses.
families determine the energy level of an element and groups determine their properties.
The Periodic table can be divided into nine families of elements each having similar properties. The families include: Alkali metals Alkaline metals The Transition metals Other metals Metalloids Non-metals Noble gases Rare Earth
Moving from left to right on the periodic table, the elements generall go from metal to nonmetals.
metals and nonmetals
Yes. There are only about 20 nonmetals and only 7 metalloids. The rest of the elements are metals.
The metalloids split the table these are a diagonal group of elements, B, Si, Ge, As, Sb and Te. To their right are the non metals to the left the metals. There are many more metals than any other type of element. See Wikipedia article "Periodic table (metals and non metals)"
