What are metals?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What are metals?       
What are metals? Metals are one of the major groups of elements. Most of them are shiny and hard. Mercury is the only metal that is a liquid at normal temperatures.

Most metals can be bent and stretched, and they can be mixed to make alloys.

Metals are usually found with other elements in the form of compounds. Bauxite is an ore, or mixture of substances, that contains aluminum, the commonest metal. It makes up about eight percent of the Earth's crust.

Osmium is the heaviest metal, and is twice as heavy as lead. Lithium is the lightest metal. It is half the weight of the same volume of water, so it floats in water.
