Standard State

How can you determine an element's standard state? Do the bond formations and formal charges contribute?

I don't think there's a specific way to determine the standard state of an elements, but it is pretty self explanatory for the most part. For example, the standard state for the noble gases would be gas, for metals and metalloids it would be solid (for the most part), and for halogens it varies, but these were discussed in lecture (Br is liquid and I is solid)
