The following is a periodic table below
All the letters are in squares
The S = an empty square
13 Colums in total
which elements would be classified as metals is it just D & R
or other metals which would be J
S S S S J S S
F S S S S S S
S S S D S S R S S S S S S
metals are to the left also.
k,f, d, r
If K is the single one would it still be a metal?
see prior question for chart
also if the question asks for metals does it mean transitional and metaloids
If the first row is k on the left, and S on the right, then K is not a metal (hydrogen).
Metals mean any element that lose electrons readily, which includes transitional metals. Metaloids are not commonly included as metals.
