## 2-43 Which group(s) of the Periodic Table contain(s):(a) Only metals?(b) Only metalloids?(c) Only nonmetals?

Expert Solution
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The group(s) of the periodic table which contains only metals should be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Periodic Table contains periods and groups. There are 18 groups and 7 periods in the periodic table. The vertical columns are known as groups and horizontal rows are known as periods.

The numbering of periods is done as 1 to 7 from top to bottom and groups are named as 1A, 2A, 3B to 8B, 1B, 2B, 3A to 8A from left to right where A represents representative elements and B represents transition elements. Elements in the same family have similar chemical and physical properties. In periodic table, elements are classified as metals, non-metals or metalloids.

### Explanation of Solution

Metals are good conductors of electricity and can be mould into different shapes without breaking.

In periodic table, the numbering of periods is done as 1 to 7 from top to bottom and groups are named as 1A, 2A, 3B to 8B, 1B, 2B, 3A to 8A from left to right where A represents representative elements and B represents transition elements...
