Number of protons in the atom, located in the nucleus. The number of protons determines what element it is, it acts as an identity.
Periodic Groups are the individual columns on the periodic table.
The horizontal rows on the periodic table. This is organized by the atomic number. i.e: 1: hydrogen 2: Helium 3: Lithium, etc.
Elements that are characterized by their hardness, conductivity, luster and versatility.
Elements that have semi-metallic properties, yet still share characteristics with non-metals. They are electrical semiconductors.
Any element that is not a metal.
The line that divides metals and non-metals on the periodic table. The stair-step-line is made up of Boron, Silicon, Germanium, Arsenic, Antimony, Tellurium, and Polonium(Metalloids).
