The Physical properties of Zinc are it is a solid, bluish-white, relatively soft shiny metal. It is neither ductile nor malleable at room temperature, however, when heated it becomes both ductile and malleable and it can then be rolled into sheets.
Zinc is a fairly reactive metal that will combine with oxygen and other non-metals. Zinc metal tarnishes in moist air and burns in air to form the white zinc oxide. It is a fair electrical conductor and will react with dilute acids to release hydrogen. Zinc does not react with water.
