  • Soda cans
  • Fake nails

Abundance

Other metals are found on the surface of the earth, and they’re used for difference purposes, such as electricity. They are reactive metals that form compounds with most nonmetals. Other metals are soft, silvery metals, with high melting & boiling points.

Location on periodic table

The other metals consist of 7 elements, which are located in group 13, 14 and 15.
