Structure and Bonding:
- The atoms in metals are closely packed together in regular layers.
- We can think of metallic bonding as positvely charged metal ions which are held together by electrons from the outermost shell of each metal atom. These delocalised electrons are free to move throughout the giant metallic lattice.
The atoms in metals are built up layer upon layer in a regular pattern. This means that they form crystas.
Metals are another example of giant…
