2 Physical propertiesIts black, its hard, not magnetic, doesn’t conduct electricity, non metallic,
3 Crystalline structure In the solid state, elemental carbon, silicon, germanium, and gray tin exist as cubic crystals, based upon a three-dimensional arrangement of bonds.Each atom is covalently bonded to four neighboring atoms in such a way that they form the corners of a tetrahedron.

5 Block, period, group, electron configuration Block in periodic table: p-blockPeriod in periodic table: 6Group in periodic table: 14electron configuration: [He].2s2.2p2
6 Uses for Carbon.Carbon has many industrial uses for its three forms; amorphous, diamond, and graphite.
7 Uses of CarbonThe amorphous form (coal) is used in power plants, and is used in the iron industry to make steel. The diamond form is used as jewelry, and is used as part of cutting tools.
9 Chemical PropertiesCarbon is sixth element in the periodic table with an atomic weight of 12. It is commonly encountered in our lives as the black residue left by burning paper, the "lead" in our graphite pencils or the glitter of diamonds in expensive jewellery.
10 Interesting facts It makes diamonds. They put it in cars to make it go faster
