    • Ductile (withstand change in shape)
    • Good thermal and electrical conductivity
  9. Non Metal
    • Not metals
    • Dull
    • Fragile
    • Poor thermal and electrical conductivity
  10. Metalloid
    • Element whose properties are both metal and non metal
    • Electrical semi-conductors
  11. Molecule
    Atoms of the same element join
  12. Testing for CO2
    • Place HCC and marble chips in a side arm test tube (with rubber stopper ontop) having the rubber tubing drain into a beaker of limewater
    • Blowing into a test tube of limewater with a straw creating small bubbles
  13. Testing for O2
