Metals, Non metals, and Metalloids
Each one of these has chemical properties and physical properties. These three each have electrons and have a certain apperance. You can compare them by their luster, if their malleable, if they gain lose or share electrons, if they can conduct heat, solid, liquid or gas, if they are ductile, etc.
Chemical properties-gain, lose or share electrons,
Pictures of them and their physical and chemical properties
Gold and silver are a metal. Like any other metal gold and silver are ductile and malleable. Metals are also good conductors of electricity. They have a metallic or shiney luster. Metals tend to lose electrons
Helium is a nonmetal... Non metals are not malleable nor ductile. They are poor conductors of electricity and don't have a luster, and they aren't usually solid. If they are they are brittle. Non metals tend to gain electrons
Silicon is a metalliod. Metalliods are malleable and ductile. They can be shiney or dull. They conduct electricity better then non metals but not as good as metals. They gain lose and share electrons. They are solids.
