Q1

Boojho is writing some statements, choose the correct statement and help him:

[A]. If an element forms a basic oxide (which turns red litmus blue), then the element will be metal.
[B]. If an element forms an acidic oxide (which turns blue litmus red), then the element will be non-metal.
[C]. Carbon dioxide is acidic in nature.
[D]. All the above
Q2

Metals generally react with dilute acids to produce hydrogen gas. Which of the following metals does not react with dilute hydrochloric acid:

[A]. Magnesium
[B]. Aluminum
[C]. Iron
[D]. Copper
Q3

[A]. Iron
[B]. Sodium
[C]. Gold
[D]. Magnesium
Q4

The substance that will be flattened on beating with a hammer is:

[A]. Crystal of iodine
[B]. Lump of sulphur
[C]. Piece of coal
[D]. Zinc granules
Q5

Consider the following statements and choose the incorrect one:

[A]. Atom is the smallest part of an element.
[B]. An element is a substance which is made up of only one kind of atoms.
[C]. An atom of liquid sulphur or vapour forms of sulphur would be different as that of solid sulphur.
[D]. Oxygen and nitrogen are two examples of elements.
What is meant by 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.

Why metals are called ductile?

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?

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?

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.
