Summary

Praise for the previous edition:

Most of the elements found in the periodic table are classified as metals. Common characteristics that help us identify metals include conductivity, reactivity, and their ability to be pounded into sheets and stretched into wires. Metals are found everywhere in the universe, and their many functions make them a most valuable resource. Metals, Second Edition takes a sharp look at metals, helping students understand their many intricate uses from industry to the arts.
