Properties of Metals

HideShow resource information
  • Most of the elements are metals - so they cover most of the perioic table. Only the elements on the far right are non-metals.
  • The metals in the centre block of the periodic table are called transition metals.
  • All metals have fairly similar basic properties:

1) Metals are strong (hard to break), but they can be bent or hammered into different shapes.

2) They're great and conducting heat and electricity

  • This means metals have loads of everyday uses:

1) They're strong and can be bent so they are good for making into things like bridges and car bodies.

2) They're ideal
