Carbon is usually classified as a nonmetal. However, the graphite used in "lead" pencils conducts electricity. Look at a pencil, and list two non metallic properties of graphite.
Step 1 of 3
Electrons Orbitals - outer particle Carbon dioxide = linear model Octet rule ● atoms combine in such a way that they each have eight electrons in their Valence shells, giving them the same electronic configuration as noble gas ○ molecules or ions are most stable when the outermost electron shells contain eight electrons ● C6H12O6+6O2 = 6CO2 + 6H2O + heat (respiration/photosynthesis) Chemical bonds- a ttraction between atoms ● Ionic- one atoms lose electron to other atoms (+) cat (-) anion - Atoms sometimes strip electrons from their bonding partners
