Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Loss of territories - productive land,industries and raw resources GROUP 14 -Carbon is a nonmetal, Silicon and Germanium are metalloids, and Tin and Lead are metals.-Each element has 4 valance electrons -Tend to form covalent compounds-As you move down the carbon group the atomic radius increases while the ionizationenergy decreases-All elements in group 14 can form four bondswhich is more than any other family on theperiodic table-Carbon is found in all living organisms and is considered the basis of life-Silicon is a semiconductor that is majorlyused in the production of electronic hardwaresuch as memory cards, hard drives, etc. -Silicon is also the second most abundant element in the earths crust by weight-Germanium conducts electricity (semiconductor)and is mainly used in the computer industry-Led is majorly used in plumbing and to blockradiation -Tin was originally used to make cans becauseit is practically unreactive, but it has since beenreplaced by alluminum-This group is unique because of its ability to form cations and anions-Group 14 is also known as tetragens or crystallogens-Carbon forms negative ions, Tin and Lead form+2 ions, and Silicon and Germanium form +4 ions-Carbon is the lightest element in the group-Lead is partially known for it's high levels oftoxicity -Group 14 elements consist of: Carbon,Silicon, Tin,Led, and Germanium -The carbon family haswidely varying physicaland reactive qualities The "Carbon Group"
