Periodic table labeled with Metals

Periodic table labeled with Metals, metals on periodic table of elements

Above labeled Periodic table exactly shows you where metals are on the Periodic table.

But do you know what exactly are the metals?

Metals are those elements which lose electrons during a chemical reaction.

In other words, metals have a tendency to lose electrons.

So the elements having metallic nature are found on the left and middle part of the Periodic table as shown in the above image.

How many metals are on the periodic table?

How many metals are on the periodic table?

More than 78% of the elements of the periodic table are metals. Out of the 118 known elements, there are around 94 elements which show metallic characteristics.

But this number is not exact.

Want to know the reason?

I have already mentioned the reason in previous article “Metals of Periodic table” (So read it from here and you will get the reason why the exact number of metals are not known).

Periodic table labeled with Nonmetals

Periodic table labeled with Nonmetals, where are nonmetals located on the periodic table

Elements which are in the top right corner of the Periodic table are classified as Nonmetals (Hydrogen is also a nonmetal which is located in the group 1).

Nonmetals have the tendency to gain the electrons during a chemical reaction.

In other words, the elements which gain electrons during a chemical reaction are classified as Nonmetals.

How many Nonmetals are on the periodic table?

There are total 18 Nonmetals on the Modern Periodic table. 

(Note: Astatine shows some properties of nonmetals as well as some properties of metalloids. But it is classified as a nonmetal on the Periodic table.

If you want to know the exact reason, then I recommend you to visit this article, where I have already mentioned the reason why Astatine is classified as Nonmetals.)

Periodic table labeled with Metalloids

Periodic table labeled with Metalloids, where are metalloids located on the periodic table

Above picture shows you the labeled Metalloids on the Periodic table. 

They are found between the metals and nonmetals. 

Elements which have the metallic properties as well as nonmetallic properties are classified as Metalloids.

Because of this reason, they are also known as semimetals.

How many Metalloids are on the Periodic table?

There are 6 commonly known Metalloids on the Periodic table.

But this is also not the exact number.

Astatine and Polonium also shows some characteristics of Metalloids.

But according to some researchers, Astatine and Polonium are not classes as Metalloids.

I want to keep this article short and I have already explained the reason why astatine and polonium are not classed as metalloids. So read it from here.

Summary

Periodic table consists of total 118 elements. All these known elements are classified in three major categories based on their metallic and nonmetallic characteristics.

  • Metals
  • Nonmetals and 
  • Metalloids

In the very beginning of this article, I showed you the Periodic table labeled with metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids.

Then we discussed the total number of metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids present on the Periodic table.
