silvery solids with low densities & low melting points found in group/column 1
alkaline earth metals
metallic elements in group/column 2 of the periodic table which are harder than the alkali metals and are also less reactive
a term used to describe a material that can be pulled out into a long wire
a vertical column of elements in the periodic table; elements in a group share chemical properties
elements located in group/column 17 which form salts
able to be hammered into thin sheets
any of several chemical elements that are usually shiny solids that conduct heat or electricity and can be formed into sheets etc.
elements that show properties of both metals & nonmetals
elements located in group/column 18 which are the most chemically inactive group on the periodic table
elements that are gases or brittle solids and poor conductors of heat & electricity

first model of the atom as a hard sphere, like a marble, solid throughout
discovered the electron,cathode ray tube experiment, blueberry muffin model
beta particle gold foil experiment and credited with the discovery of the proton and the nucleus.
published first periodic table and organized the elements by increasing atomic mass.
smallest component of an element having the chemical properties of the element. Composed of proton, neutrons, & electrons but most of the atom is empty space.
