Differentiate between metal and non-metal on the basis of their chemical properties.

Answer:

Metals and non-metals are two distinct types of materials that we see every day. Elements can be divided into metals and non-metals and it is important to know whether a particular element is a metal or non-metal. Metals such as copper and aluminium are good heat and electricity conductors, while non-metals such as phosphorus and sulphur are insulators.
