Physical Properties of Metals

Let, discuss physical properties:

1. In physical property metals contains lustrous surface and can polished.

2. Metals are solid and heavy, even though sodium, potassium, magnesium, aluminium etc. are comparatively lighter metals.

3. Most metals are hard and cannot be cut with knife.

4. Metals are excellent conductor of warm and electricity.

5. Most metals are ductile and malleable and sheets can be obtained.

6. Melting points and boiling points of metals are very high.

7. They produce sounding noise when collide.

8. Alloys of different properties can be prepared by mixing one metal into other.

These are about physical properties.

13 questions

1. Do you recall the difference between a physical and chemical property?

2. Physical properties can be observed or measured without changing the composition of matter. Physical properties are used to observe and describe matter. Physical properties include: appearance, texture, color, odor, melting point, boiling point, density, solubility, polarity, and many others (00:00:10)

3. Can you think of a metal that is not solid at room temperature? (00:00:25)

4. Hmmm, i always thought that all metals were hard. A metal cutting a metal (00:00:55)

5. Lustre - what we call shininess or young folks call "bling" (00:01:14)

6. Can you think of a way, how this property is useful to humans? (00:02:49)

7. What is the name of the nonmetal that you have learnt which can conduct electricity? (00:03:21)

8. Does this look familiar? (00:03:53)

9. what is the density range of light metals?
Remember its units grams/cubiccentimetre

10. Heavy metals have a density greater than

11. Metals are sonorous- Can you think of applications of this? (00:05:24)

12. Ok. Use your google doc and post to the classroom folder (00:05:35)

13. At this point open up the google doc. You can find this in the google classroom folder. All notes should be taken on this document. (00:00:02)
