Properties of Elements: Metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

All known elements can be classified as metals, nonmetals or metalloids based on their physical and chemical properties. With the Properties of Elements: Metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, investigate the physical and chemical properties of eight elements and classify them as metals, nonmetals or metalloids according to their physical appearance, malleability, ability to conduct electricity and whether they undergo chemical reactions.
