non metals table

  • Nonmetal | chemistry | Britannica

    Nonmetal, substance that does not exhibit such characteristic properties of metals as hardness, mechanical adaptability, or the ability to conduct electricity. This classification is generally applied to the chemical elements carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, oxygen, sulfur, selenium, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and the noble-gas elements.

  • Periodic Table of the Elements - Non-Metals - Gordon England

    Non metals. Some allotropes of elements show more pronounced metal, metalloid or non-metal behaviour than others. The element carbon; its diamond allotrope is non-metallic, however the graphite allotrope is electrically conductive showing characteristic more like a metalloid. Phosphorus, and selenium also have allotropes which display borderline behaviour.

  • Metals and Non-Metals | Brilliant Math & Science Wiki

    Chromium, a metal and sulfur, a non-metal. The periodic table can be broadly segregated into two types of elements, commonly referred to as metals and non-metals. Each of these elements have varying properties and can be found in a wide variety of places, such as bridges, buildings, roads, electric cables, cars, aircraft, mobile phones, and laptops, as well as in the oxygen we breathe and the carbon dioxide .

  • The Difference Between Metals and Nonmetals

    Metals. On the periodic table, metals are separated from nonmetals by a zig-zag line stepping through carbon, phosphorus, selenium, iodine, and radon. These elements and those to the right of them are nonmetals. Elements just to the left of the line may be termed metalloids or semimetals and have properties intermediate between those...

  • Metals, Nonmetals, and Metalloids of the Periodic Table

    Elements of the periodic table are grouped as metals, metalloids or semimetals, and nonmetals. The metalloids separate the metals and nonmetals on a periodic table. Also, many periodic tables have a stair-step line on the table identifying the element groups. The line begins at boron (B) and extends down to polonium (Po).
