Metal

What is metal?

A metal is a type of periodic table element that has high electrical and thermal conductivity, luster, and easily losses electrons to form a cation. Different types of metals constitute three forth of the elements in the periodic table. Metals have properties to contain few electrons in the outer shell but it contains too many orbitals. It formed different types of crystals by a metallic bonding.
