Other metals don’t have a pattern that each outer shell of the elements , because the are located in different area of the periodic table.
Other metals are more reactive than other, because since not all Other metals are located in the same area ,the elements will have different numbers of electrons on the outer electron shell. The elements of Other metals can bond because none of the elements have fully configured outer shells.They’re found mostly with non metals or with the elements in the same group and its difficult to separate them.
Other metals are used for general uses, for example:
- Parts of cars, trains, or planes
- Building materials, such as electronics and toys.
- Baseball bats
- Soda cans
- Fake nails
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.
