Non metals 

Most elements are metals 

Metals are elements which form posotive ions when they react.

Thye're towards the bottom and to the top of the periodic table. 

Most elements in the periodic table are metals. 

Non metals are at the far right and tgop of the periodic table. 

Non metals dont't generally react to form posotive ions. 

Electronic structure: 

Atoms generally react to form a full outer shell. They do this via losing, gaining or sharing electrons. 

Metals to the left of the periodic table don't have many electrons to remove and metals towards the bottom of the periodic table have iyter electrons which are far away from the necleus so it is a weaker attraction. Both these effect mean
