Metal Facts

Metals are usually solid, good conductors of electricity and heat, shiny when clean, strong and malleable.

Bronze is a metal alloy made from copper and tin.

Iron, Gold, Silver, and Platinum are examples of metal.

Sodium and potassium are also elements that example metal.

Metalloid Facts

  • They appear to be metal in appearance, but are brittle.
  • They can generally form alloys with metals
  • Some metalloids such as silicon and germanium become electrical conductors under special conditions. These are called semiconductors.
  • They are solids under standard conditions.
  • They are mostly nonmetallic in their chemical behavior.

Noble Gas Facts

  • Group of six elements- helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon and radon
  • All of the elements in the Noble Gas Family are colorless, odorles and tasteless, unless influenced by other chemicals
  • Noble Gases are also call "Rare" Gases, Inert Gases or "Royal" Gases
  • All the elements in the Noble gas Family have the maximum number of electrons possible in their outer shell making them stable, except Helium but its happy with only 2 electrons.
