Metallic Bonding

HideShow resource information
Losing electrons
Metals, want lose electrons in order to achieve full outer shell
1 of 8
Delocalised electrons
metal loses electron, which is shared between other metal ions - they are delocalised
2 of 8
Giant metallic lattice
made of positive ions, held together by 'sea' of delocalised electrons
3 of 8
Properties of Metals
Conduct Electricity, Malleable, Shiny, High Melting Points
4 of 8
Conduct Electricity
delocalised electrons move, conducting electricity
5 of 8
Malleable
positive ions move over and around each other, whilst held together by delocalised electrons
6 of 8
Shiny
light bounces off delocalised electrons
7 of 8
High Melting Points
strong electrostatic forces between positive ions and negative delocalised electrons
