The difference between metal and non metals based on Chemical properties are:
  • Metals mostly belong to S-block and D-block of the periodic table.
  • Metals are mostly electropositive in nature.
  • They readily give out electrons and behave as reducing agents.
  • Metals displace hydrogen from dilute acids.
  • Metals form basic oxides.
  • Metals form ionic or electrovalent bonds by donating electrons.
  • Non metals belong to the P block of the periodic table.
  • Non metals are mostly electro negative in nature
  • They accept electrons and behave as oxidizing agents
  • Non metals can not displace hydrogen from acids.
  • Non metals form acidic oxides
  • Non metals mainly form Compounds with Covalent bonds.
