Alkali Metals

  • are silverly solids 
  • have to be stored in Oil
  • have to behandled with forceps (they burn the skin)
  • have LOW DENSITY (first 3 are less dense than water)
  • have ONE Outer Electron (makes them V.reactive and gives them all similar properties)


A you go DOWN Group 1, the alkali metals 

1) become MORE REACTIVE..........because the outer E is more easily lost (it's further from the nucleus)
