AQA GCSE Chemistry Transition metals
This page covers the following topics:
1. Transition metals versus group 1
Transition metals are much harder than group 1 elements, and have higher melting points. But the electron configuration of group 1 elements makes them much more reactive than transition metals.
When copper is placed in water, does it sink or float?
Which element has the higher melting point, Vanadium or Potassium?
When lithium is placed in water, does it sink or float?
A lump of iron and a lump of sodium are left open to air. Which will oxidise first?
Group 1 elements are very hard and dense. True or False?
