METALS PHYSICAL PROPERTIES Metals have shiness, they have LUSTER. Metals are good CONDUCTORS of HEAT and ELECTRICITY. Metals are SOLID, except mercury that is liquid. Metals can be shaped into sheets, it means that they are MALLEABLE. Metals can be shaped into wires, it means that they are DULTILE. Metals are resistant to scratching, they are HARD. Metals return to their original shape, it means that thet are ELASTIC.
CHEMICAL PROPERTIES Metals form CATIONS, positive particles. Metals form CATIONS, positive particles. Metals OXIDIZE easily, so it is said that they RUST. Metals OXIDIZE easily, so it is said that they RUST.
