ionic + metallic bonding properties of metals.
1 are malleable
2conduct electricity + heat
4 hve high boiling and melting points
5 are shiny(when polished)
6 are sonorous(make a noise when hit)
7 are solid at room temperature(except mercury)
8 are ductile
structure of metals.
ions are formed by the giving or receiving of electrons.
ionic bonding is the electrostatic attraction of oppitley charged ions. the attraction acts in all directions and
it is this attraction that is called the ionic bond.
the attraction results in a giant structure arrangement called an ionic lattice.
there are 3 types of strong bonds in metals.
ionic electrons are transferred from metal atoms to nonmetal atoms
covalentelectrons are shared between atoms
the outer electrons surrounding the atoms can easily move from one atom to the next. the outer electrons
form what is called a 'sea' of free electrons surrounding positively charged metal ions.
