Metals are defined as a chemical element, compound or alloy, which is
a good conductor of electricity and heat
forms cations and ionic bonds with non-metals
and readily lose electrons to form positive ions.
They are the first, second eighth and transition series on the periodic table.
Metals are usually found as grey, brown or silver solids, as opposed to the bright colors of the transition metal oxides.
they are often dense and can carry electrical charges due to their unique structure.
Metallic bonding is a bond created by metal ions bonding with electrons. these have a high attractive force and is therefore extremely hard to snap
Metals are used in daily life, and are often found in cars, utensils, cutlery, tools, electronics, money and containers
