Metal

Metal, the class of malleability, ductility, lustrous materials, or elements of the period table characterized by high electrical or thermal conductivity. The metals constitute about three-forth of the periodic table elements with too few electrons in the outer shell, mainly constitute different types of crystal by metallic bonding. In this learning page, we discuss different topics related to properties, extraction, and uses of metals.
