What is meant by lustre in Class 8 Science Chapter 4?

Metals generally shine brilliantly and can be highly polished. The electronic structure of metals is such that the metals are able to reflect incident light. This characteristic metallic feature is called lustre.

Why metals are called ductile as in 8th Science ch. 4?

Ability of the metals to be melted and drawn into thin wires is called ductility. Because of this property, metals are known as ductile.

What happened when metal react with dilute acids explain as 8th Science Chapter 4?

Most metals react with dilute acids (Sulphuric and hydrochloric acids) by replacing hydrogen and forming a salt. Hydrogen gas is released.

What is an alloy according to Class 8 Science Chapter 4?

Alloy is a homogeneous mixture of two or more metals or of a metal and one or more non-metals

Physical Properties of Metals

Physical State:Metals are generally solids at room temperature. Mercury (Hg) is the only exception which is liquid at room temperature.
Malleability:Metals can be spread by hammered or beaten into thin sheets, without breaking because metallic bonds in the metals do not break easily. Gold (Au), silver (Ag) are highly malleable elements.
Ductility:Ability of the metals to be melted and drawn into thin wires is called ductility.
Lustre:Metals generally shine brilliantly and can be highly polished. The electronic structure of metals is such that the metals are able to reflect incident light. This characteristic metallic feature is called lustre.
Conductor:In metals, the bonds are formed by excess or free electrons moving around large array of atoms. These electrons are able to conduct electricity and heat.

Density of Metals

Density of metals is high. Only sodium (Na) and potassium (K) have densities less than water. Thus all metals are hard meterials except sodium, potassium and lead which are soft metals.
