INTERESTING METAL FACTS

METALS, NON-METALS, METALLIODS

METALS

  • These Metals all have Luster (Shininess).
  • The Metals are Malleable because they can change their physical properties with out breaking, or damage.
  • These Metals are also Ductile because Metals can be shaped into thin wires if they are melted.

NON-METALS

  • Non-Metals have no Luster (Dull appearance).
  • Non-Metals are also Brittle, or easily broken.
  • All Non-Metals have low density since they are so delicate and light weighted.

METALLOIDS

  • Metalloids conduct heat and electricity better than Non-Metals, but not very well as metals.
  • Metalloids can be dull or shiny.
  • Just like Metals, Metalloids can change their physical properties if they are melted.
