Atomic Structure Electricity

1. Explain how being a metal, metalloid, or non-metal affects conductivity. Metal improves conductivity since Metals usually have small amounts of valance electrons which allow smoother movement through them. Metalloids can either improve or weaken conductivity by adding or removing an electron. Non-metals have poor conductivity because their valance shell haves 4 or more valance electrons. 2. Is the element Sulfur a metal or non- metal. Explain how you got your answer. Nonmetal, it has three physical properties of nonmetals/…
