Do Metal Properties Have High or Low Melting Points?


A metal is a chemical element that is a good conductor of both electricity and heat. Generally, metals have high melting and boiling points with all alkali metals that are soft having low melting and boiling points. Tungsten has the highest melting point with sodium and potassium having low melting points.
