Group 1,7,8 and Transition Metals
- How are Group 1 Elements Stored?
They are stored in oil in order to prevent them from reacting with the air, since they have a high reactivity
- Why are Group 8 Elements Unreactive?
They have a full outer shell of electrons, which means they don't need to lose or gain any electrons as they are already stable
- Are Group 7 Elements Metals or Non-metals?
They are non-metals as they are on the right of the Periodic Table
- List the Properties of Transition Metals:
Physical Properties- shiny, strong, hard, dense, malleable, high melting points (except Hg) and conductors of heat and electricity (in liquid & solid state)
Chemical Properties- very low reactivity, produce coloured ionic compounds, often make good catalysts (due to unreactivity)
- What is Special about the Formula of Group 7 Elements?
Group 7 elements are diatomic when on their own, so they have a little '2' after their symbol when by themselves
