What are alloys and how these are formed by the elements of transition metals?

Expert Answer:

Alloys are homogeneous solid solutions in which the atoms of one metal are distributed randomly among the atoms of the other. Alloys are formed by atoms with almost similar metallic radii. Transition metals readily form alloys because of similar radii. The alloys so formed are hard, have high melting points and improved quality than original metal.
