About this unit

Most of the materials present around us is grouped widely into metals and non metals. In this unit, we would come across their physical and chemical properties, reactivity series of metals, ionic bonds, and ionic compounds. We would also know in detail how metals occur in nature, different ways to extract them, how they corrode, and how to prevent them from corrosion.
