Describes the ability of a metal to reflect light
the ability to be pulled into thin wires
the ability of a substance to be hammered or rolled into sheets.
Elements in group 1, react quickly with other elements such as oxygen. Occur only in compounds. Have silvery appearance. Soft. Lowest densities of all metals.
Alkaline earth metals
the elements in group 2 on the periodic table. React quickly. Don't occur naturally, soft, silvery, and has a higher density than alkali metals, but still have a low density.
elements in groups 3-12. High melting points, greater strength, and higher densities. Some exist freely in nature.
are elements that have no metallic properties.
an element in group 17 of the periodic table. can react with metal and salt. react with other compounds to form compounds. Don't exist as free elements.
elements in group 18. dont react with other elements
an element that has physical and chemical properties of both metals and nonmetals. Also referred to as semi-conducters
conducts electricity at high temperatures, but not at low temperatures.
