Please see below.


p-block in the periodic table is on the right side of the table. The common factor for all p-block elements is that their valence electrons (outermost electrons)are in the p-orbital.

Its the only block that contains all 3 types of elements - metals (tin, gallium etc.), non-metals (carbon, phosphorous etc.), and metalloids (boron, silicon etc.).
