Practice questions

Multiple-choice questions

  1. Which of the following is a property of metals due to metallic bonding?
    1. They are malleable and ductile.
    2. They have low melting points.
    3. They have low electrical conductivity.
  2. In metallic bonding, what is the role of the “sea of electrons”?
    1. It generates heat.
    2. It provides electrical conductivity.
    3. It forms covalent bonds.
    4. It generates electricity.
  3. At room temperature, most metals are either a:
    1. Solid
    2. Gas
    3. Liquid
  4. What does malleable mean?
    1. Look shiny
    2. Join easily
    3. Break easily
    4. Able to be shaped
  5. Why do metals conduct?
    1. The electrons are held tightly within the lattice.
    2. The electrons are delocalised and able to move.
    3. The electrons are shared between two metal ions.
    4. The electrons show negative charges, which are easier to conduct heat.
