Expert Answer

Step 1

An atom can be considered as the smallest unit of any matter. An atom is composed of certain sub-atomic particles whose position, interaction and charges maintain the neutrality of the atom. These sub-atomic particles are electrons, neutrons and protons. An element is composed of same type of atoms.

Step 2

All known elements are placed in the periodic table according to their atomic number. They can classified as metals, non-metals and metalloids. All metals show different chemical and physical properties.

Step 3

On the basis of reactivity of metals, they can be arranged in a series that is called as metal activity series. According to...
