Elaborate on what can be learned about the properties by the location of element on the periodic table. Use atomic number 13 as an example. A) It is a non-metal, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a -3 charge, and is brittle, moldable, and non-conductive. B) It is a metalloid, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a -5 charge, and is workable, inelastic, and non-conductive. C) It is a main group metal, has 3 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a +3 charge, and is ductile, malleable, and conductive. D) It is a transition metal, has 1 valence electrons, becomes a cation with a +1 charge, and is ductile, malleable, and conductive.

    Alright, so looking at the Periodic Table I am able to tell that Aluminum falls under Atomic Number 13. Now, Aluminum is a metal because it has the ability to donate 3 electrons & as per the definition of metals, metals are substances which donate valence electrons. Aluminum also contains lustre. Lustre is a thin coating containing unoxidized metal that gives a glaze to ceramics.

    Close! But, try again :) Aluminum is a one of the main elements in the category it is in.

    Haha, it's fine :) Hint: Aluminum is just a regular metal. Which of the answers capture the 'Regular Metal Element' aura?

    Err... It's C. Since Aluminum is just a regular metal, well... it belongs with all of the *Regular metals which is the main group.

    I probably wasn't that much help though, but maybe if you head to the Biology section and asked a few of them, they would give a more in depth description... Sorry though
