Chemistry C2: Metallic Structures

HideShow resource information
What type of structure do metals consist of?
Metals consist of a GIANT structure
1 of 6
Why are metals good conductors of heat and electricity?
They're good conductors of heat and electricity because of the free to move electrons
2 of 6
What gives metals its properties?
The free electrons
3 of 6
What are Alloys?
Alloys are a mix of two of more metals
4 of 6
Are alloys harder or softer than pure metals? and why?
Alloys are harder, because the particles within the alloy are from different metals, are therefore are different sizes. This means the metal atoms are distorted and it is more difficult for them to slide over each-other
5 of 6
What holds the metals together?
The strong electrostatic attraction between the positive metals ions and the negative electrodes
