Examples of Non Metals?

Answer

The term non-metal is used in chemistry when classifying the chemical elements. Non-metals are separated from metals on the periodic table. The properties of non-metals iinclude high ionization energies electronegativities. They are not usually good conductors for electricity and heat. Non-metals that are solid are brittle and have little or no metallic luster. Non-metals usually are able to easily gain electrons. Some examples of non-metals include carbon, oxygen, selenium, sulfur, phosphorus, hydrogen, and nitrogen. Noble gases and halogens are also non-metals.
