Account for the fact that the line that separates the metals from the nonmetals on the periodic table is diagonal downward to the right instead of horizontal or vertical.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

An explanation corresponding to the fact that the line separating the metals from the nonmetals on the periodic table is diagonal downward to the right instead of horizontal or vertical is to be stated.

Concept introduction:

The fundamental division of elements in the periodic table is based on the metallic and nonmetallic character. Metals are present at the right side of the periodic table while non-metals are present at the left. There are some elements having both the metallic and non-metallic character lies on the division line of metals and non-metals in the periodic table.

To determine: An explanation regarding the fact that the line that separates the metals from the non-metals in the periodic table is diagonal.

Explanation of Solution

Explanation

All the elements are systematically arranged in the periodic table on the basis of the similarity in the chemical and physical properties. Metals are presents at the left side in the periodic table. Metals have the tendency to lose one or more electrons and form positive ions while non-metals have the tendency to gain electron and to form negative ions.

Metals have low ionization energy while non-metals have high ionization energy...
