On the Periodic Table, there are three major types of elements known as Metals, Non-Metals, and Metalloids. Here are a few properties of metals and non-metals.
1. Metals are generally shiny, malleable, and hard. Metals are also good conductors of electricity. Examples of metals are Gold, Silver, Iron, Uranium, and Zinc.
2. Non-metals do not conduct heat or electricity very well. Non-metals are typically brittle and are not easily molded into shapes. Example non-metal elements are Hydrogen and Carbon.
