Arrange these elements in order of increasing metallic character: Si; N, Si, P, Ga, Al.
It is known that electronegativity and metallic character is inversely proportional to each other i.e as the electronegativity increases, the metallic character decreases.
E.N of Si = 1.9 E.N of P= 2.19
E.N of N =3.04 E.N of Ga = 1.81
E.N of Sr =0.95 E.N of Al = 1.61
Sr > Al > Ga > Si > P > N
