    1.Any of a category of electropositive elements that usually have a shiny surface, are generally good conductors of heat and electricity, and can be melted or fused, hammered into thin sheets, or drawn into wires. Typical metals form salts with nonmetals, basic oxides with oxygen, and alloys with one another.

    2. An alloy of two or more metallic elements.An atom is the smallest building block of matter. Atoms are made of neutrons, protons and electrons. The nucleus of an atom is extremely small in comparison to the atom. If an atom was the size of the Houston Astrodome, then its nucleus would be the size of a pea.

    *malleable = Capable of being shaped or formed, as by hammering or pressure

    ductile = Easily molded or shaped

    luster =Soft reflected light ,Brilliance or radiance of light

    conductivity =The ability or power to conduct or transmit heat, electricity.

    melting point = To be changed from a solid to a liquid state especially by the application of heat.

    hardness = The quality or condition of being hard

    density = The quantity of something per unit measure, especially per unit length, area, or volume.

    2.Ore deposits are mineral deposits defined as being economically recoverable. Mineral deposits may include those bodies of mineralisation which are uneconomic resources, of too low a grade or tonnage or technically impossible for extraction of the contained metal..
