The Difference Between Metals, Non-metals, and metalloids. Metalloids Metalloids are
elements whose properties are intermediate between those of metals and solid nonmetals. Such as silicon and boron. Metals Non-Metals An element, compound, or alloy that is good conductor of both electricity and heat. They are also solids. Metals are malleable, ductile and shiny. They consist of close-packed atoms.
Ex. Iron, copper, and nickel. One of the elements which do not exhibit metallic properties , generally located in the upper righthand corner of the periodic table. They are gases.
Examples: oxygen , nitrogen , hydrogen , & carbon The difference between metalloids, metals and non metals is that they all have different types of properties. Metals are solids, non metals are gasses and metalloids are in between metals and non metals. Also, metals have there atoms all close and packed, non metals have there atoms far apart, and metalloids have there atoms either close or far apart. Metals are separated form the non metals in the periodic table.
