    Metals and Non-metals Elements are divided mainly into two groups on the basis of physical and chemical properties – Metal and Non-metal. Metals: Part - I Physical Properties of Metals:- Hardness:- Most of the metals are hard‚ except alkali metals‚ such as sodium‚ potassium‚ lithium‚ etc. Sodium‚ potassium‚ lithium etc. are very soft metals‚ these can be cut using knife. Strength:- Most of the metals are strong and have high tensile strength. Because of this big structures are made using metals

    Extraction of metals The History of Metals. Metals have been used by people for many thousands of years. Gold and silver‚ found as native metal‚ were used both as jewellery and as a status symbol - nothing new there. These metals were known in the Stone Age‚ but gold and silver are too soft to be used as tools. The first really useful metal to be discovered was bronze. This began the Bronze Age. Bronze was used extensively for tools and weapons in Asia and Africa from 4‚500 B.C. (6‚500 years

    Tony Nguyen Honors Chemistry Period 7 9/17/13 The Density of Metals Lab BACKROUND: Density is a constant relationship between the mass and volume of a specific type of matter. Measurements of both mass and volume can be obtained for a metal sample. The relationship can be shown graphically by plotting the volume of a sample on the horizontal x-axis and the mass of the sample along the vertical y-axis. Plotting the values for several samples‚ a linear relationship can be seen for a density (slope=density)

    EXTRACTION OF METALS SUMMARY Most metals exist in compounds in rocks in the Earth’s crust. Many of these ores contain oxides or sulphides of the metals. The compounds need to be reduced to produce the metals as elements. Metals are very useful to us because of their special properties. Reduction means removal of oxygen or gain of electrons. Carbon is a good chemical reducing agent because it readily combines with oxygen‚ but it is only useful for the metals below it in the Reactivity

    Chemical Prperties of Metals Most metals are chemically reactive‚ reacting with oxygen in the air to form oxides over changing timescales (for example iron rusts over years and potassium burns in seconds). The alkali metals react quickest followed by the alkaline earth metals‚ found in the leftmost two groups of the periodic table. Examples: 4Na + O2 → 2Na2O (sodium oxide) 2Ca + O2 → 2CaO (calcium oxide) 4Al + 3O2 → 2Al2O3 (aluminium oxide) The transition metals take much longer to

    STRENGTHENING OF METALS There are 4 major ways to strengthen metals‚ and all work because they make dislocation motion more difficult. They also reduce the ductility: 1) Cold work (Strain Hardening) 2) Reduce grain size (Strengthening by Grain Size Reduction) 3) Add other elements in solid solution (Solid Solution Strengthening) 4) Add second phase particles (Precipitation or Age Hardening) • These mechanisms may be combined. • For example‚ the world’s strongest structural material (with

    Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting‚ bending‚ and assembling processes: Cutting is done by sawing‚ shearing‚ or chiseling (all with manual and powered variants); torching with hand-held torches (such as oxy-fuel torches or plasma torches); and via numerical control (CNC) cutters (using a laser‚ mill bits‚ torch‚ or water jet). Bending is done by hammering (manual or powered) or via press brakes and similar tools. Modern metal fabricators utilize press brakes to either

    without metal. The metals we use in our houses are mostly for keeping them sturdy. Though there is one problem we have when it comes to metals. That problem is that they rust. Metals rust when they are in contact with oxygen‚ and water. They rust much faster when they are in contact with salt water‚ and acid rain. We chose to see what would happen to various metals when they contacted with salt water. When the electrons move around in the salt water‚ it causes the metals to rust. The metals we chose

    Density of Metals Lab 1. Purpose The purpose of this lab was answered in 4 questions‚ and their answers are here shown. The density of the metals we used were 5g/cm3. The density of a metal piece does not depend on its size‚ it depends on the total mass and total volume. The most accurate way of determining density is dividing mass by volume. You can’t identify metals by their density. It can help you narrow the options down‚ but you can’t identify a metal by using only its density. 2. Question

Conversely‚ the results of the experiment themselves‚ whether volume‚ mass‚ or density‚ proved insufficient in my attempts to distinguish the identities of the metals.
