What are the exceptions to metals being solid at room temperature?

Sodium and potassium

Match the following metals with their exceptional property:

Mercury = Liquid at room temperature Sodium and Potassium = Low melting point Iron = Used in construction of bridges and buildings Gold = Most ductile metal

Match the following metal oxides with their behavior in water:

Sodium oxide = Forms alkali and turns red litmus to blue Potassium oxide = Forms alkali and turns red litmus to blue Aluminium metal = Shows basic as well as acidic behavior Zinc oxide = Insoluble in water

Match the following metals with their reaction product with oxygen:

Sodium = Sodium oxide Aluminium = Aluminium oxide Copper = Copper oxide Iron = Iron(II, III) oxide

Match the following metals with their exceptional property:

Magnesium = Used in laboratory experiments Tungsten = Used for making electric bulb filaments Copper = Drawn into thin wires Silver = Among the best ductile metals

Match the following metals with their exceptional property:

Gallium and Cesium = Low melting point Sodium and Potassium = Not strong enough for construction purposes Mercury = Sonorous Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold = Solid at room temperature

Match the metal with its corresponding property:

Gold = Best conductor of electricity Copper = Highly malleable metal Lead = Poorest conductor of heat Iron = High melting point of 1535°C

Match the metal with its common usage:

Gold = Jewelry making Aluminium = Decorating sweets and packing food items Copper = Making cooking utensils and water boilers Lead = Not commonly used due to high reactivity with oxygen

Match the metal with its exceptional property:

Silver = Exceptional ability to conduct both heat and electricity Mercury = Exceptionally low melting point Copper = Exceptional malleability Iron = Exceptional strength compared to other metals

Match the metal with its application in daily life:

Gold = Used in electronic components for conductivity Aluminium = Used in aircraft construction for its lightweight Copper = Used in electrical wiring due to high conductivity Iron = Used in construction for its strength and durability

Match the metal with its characteristic sound property:

Gold = Produces a deep or ringing sound when struck Silver = Does not produce a characteristic sound when struck Lead = Muffles or dampens sound when struck Aluminium = Produces a high-pitched sound when struck

Match the metal with its unique application based on its melting point:

Silver = Used in high-temperature electrical contacts due to high melting point Aluminium = Used in low-temperature cooking applications due to low melting point Copper = Used in high-temperature welding due to high melting point Mercury = Used in thermometers due to low melting point
