  • Properties of metals
    • where?
      • transation:centre block
      • all metas conduct electricty and are mallable
      • Most metals are trasnsition metals and have high melting points and are malleable
    • properties
      • the structure gives it its property
      • metalic bonds let outer elctrons of each atom to becom delocalised (move freely)
        • made up of regular arrangment of postive ions and a sea of delocailsed electrons
          • What makes them good conductors is that the elcetrons can do this
      • strong bonds+very high melting points and boiling
        • insuble in water(dont dissolve
