List of Important Metals and their Ores

Metals are the element that loses electrons easily and have positive ions or cations. It consists of metallic bonds. In this article we will see what are metals, ores, its properties, etc. Also, a list of important metals with ores is given which will give an idea of metals and from where they are extracted and help with your various exam preparations through which you will be able to learn the formulas of elements.

Metals are the element that loses electrons easily and have positive ions or cations. It consists of metallic bonds.

Physical properties of metals are:

- Metals are shiny and ductile i.e. can be converted into thin wires.

- Metals are malleable i.e. can be converted into thin sheets.

- Metals are dense and very good conductor of heat and electricity.

- Metals are lustrous and dense.

- Metals are elastic and tough.

- Metals can be converted into liquid so, it is fusible also.

Detail analysis of Metals its properties and reactivity series

Ores are those minerals from which metals are extracted commercially and economically. Like Bauxite (Al2O32H2O) is the ore of Aluminium which contains 50% to 70% of Aluminium Oxide.

Elements of Metals can be broken down into several categories; one of them is transition metals.

Transition metals are those metals in which inner d or f orbitals are being filled. But do you know that what are orbital’s? It may be defined as the way that electrons can be organised around a nucleus. There are four types of orbitals: s, p, d and f. Now, after understanding what are metals, its properties, ores, etc. now we will see a list of important metals and their ores.
