Three characteristics of metal are  1) malleable (ability to be hammered into thin sheets) 2) ductile (ability to be drawn out into thin wires) 3) good conductors of heat and electricity

Some characteristics of metals are: •good conductors of heat •good conductors of electricity •ductile (can be drawn into wires) •malleable (can be hammered) •high tensile strength usually lustrous/shiny •atoms of most metals have few electrons in their outer energy level most metals are solid at room temperature (an exception is mercury) •insoluble in water unless they react e.g sodium, lithium etc they lose electrons when they react
