Transition metals are in the d-block, groups 3-12. Examples of transition metals are copper and chromium

The transition metals are all the d-block elements (groups 3-12).

Transition metals also always have valence electrons in at least two shells instead of just one

Also Dr.Lavelle stared that we are only expected to be familiar with the first row of the d-block or transition metal elements.

Transition have varying oxidation numbers depending on the bound atoms.

Transition metals are those listed in the d-block. According to the IUPAC, they're atoms with incomplete d sub-shell or can give rise to cations with an incomplete d sub-shell. For this class, elements of the first row of the d-block are the only transition metals to familiarize yourself with (particularly regarding oxidation numbers and coordination complexes).

Hope this helps.

The transition metals are the elements from group 3 to 12. They have the d orbitals in them. Some examples include Cobalt(Co) and Fe(iron).

Transition metals are the d-block elements.
