    There are three essential properties of every material that scientists use as a premise for most every study. The first is the kind of atoms that the material is made up of. You have your neutral elements and your compound elements. The neutral elements have the same amount of protons and electrons, which basically cancel each other out leaving them neutral. The compound element deals with combining more than one element. The second is the way those atoms are arranged. A good example of this is by comparing atoms of liquid and atoms of solids. For instance the atoms of liquids move around freer than atoms of solids which are packed together. The third is the way the atoms are bonded together. There are for key properties to understand when studying a material. The strength of the material, which is its ability to withstand forces being applied to it without breaking, is the first. The second is the materials elasticity, which is its ability to flex while returning to its original form. The third is the materials plasticity, which is its ability to change its shape permanently. The forth is the materials ductility, which is the materials ability to be deformed.…

    Metallic substances are substances that are made up of one or more metal. They have regular 3D lattice of positively charged ions. Metallic substances are bond together by metallic bond which has strong electrostatic attraction between the positive ions and the delocalised electrons. These delocalised electrons carry current giving metallic substance the ability to conduct electricity in solid or liquid form. Metallic substances are insoluble in water. Because of strong metallic bond, metallic substances have high melting point. It requires a very large amount of thermal energy to break this strong bond. Metallic substances are malleable; they can be hammered into various shapes. They are also ductile; they can be drawn into thin wires. Metallic substances are very dense and hard.…
