- Solid under NTP (Normal Temperature and Pressure).
- Solid, liquid and gases at NTP.
- Dull appearance
- High density
- Low density
Melting and boiling point
The capacity to withstand strain without breaking is called tensile strength. Metals have this property.
Non - metals do not have this property.
The tendency of hammering metals
into very thin sheets called malleability. metals are malleable.
When non-metals are hammered, they will form a powdery mass as they are in solid state and are brittle in nature.
Metals can be drawn into thin
wires. Hence, ductile.
- Good conductors
- Bad conductor of electricity
|When hitting metals, they produce a typical sound called sonorous.||Non-sonorous (do not produce sound when hit).|
