Activity 3.7 NCERT Class 10 Science, Metals and Non-metals

Activity 3.7 NCERT Class 10 Science, Chapter 3 Metals and Non-metals

Brief procedure:

Activity 3.7 asks us to compare the properties of metals discussed in earlier activities with some common non-metals.


In activities from 3.1 to 3.6, we studied various properties of metals. They are:

1. Lusture 2. Hardness 3.Malleability 4. Ductility 5. Electric conductivity 6. Heat conductivity.

Metals generally carry all these properties except a few like mercury which is soft (liquid), Sodium and lithium which are not hard. Most non-metals have contrasting features with few exceptions like coal and graphite and diamond which are hard. Below table summarises the properties of some common non-metals.
