Chemical elements questionsThis is a list of recently added questions about chemical elements.
What can be used to extinguish magnesium fires?
The water, fire blanket and carbon dioxide fire extinguisher cannot be used for extinguishing magnesium fires. Burning magnesium is usually quenched by using a Class D dry chemical fire extinguisher, or by covering the fire with sand to remove its air source.
how many groups and periods does the modern periodic table have
6 periods and 14 groups
7 periods and 18 groups
8 periods and 19 groups
9 periods and 20 groups
The modern periodic table of the elements contains 18 groups, or vertical columns. Elements in a group have similar chemical and physical properties because they have the same number of outer electrons. The periodic table consists of seven periods. The periods vary in length.
The rarest chemical element naturally ocurring in the Earth's crust is...
Astatine is a radioactive chemical element with symbol At and atomic number 85. It is the rarest naturally occurring element in the Earth's crust, occurring only as the decay product of various heavier elements. The total amount of astatine in the Earth's crust is estimated to be less than one gram at any given time.
Which element is blue in liquid state?
Liquid oxygen has a pale blue color and is strongly paramagnetic. The first measurable quantity of liquid oxygen was produced by Polish professors Zygmunt Wróblewski and Karol Olszewski (Jagiellonian University in Kraków) on April 5, 1883.
What is the half-time of radiocarbon? (carbon-14)
Carbon-14, 14C, or radiocarbon, is a radioactive isotope of carbon with an atomic nucleus containing 6 protons and 8 neutrons. Carbon-12 and carbon-13 are both stable, while the half-life of carbon-14 is 5,730 ±40 years.
What is the name of the most radioactive isotope on the planet?
210Po is extremely toxic, with one microgram being enough to kill the average adult (250,000 times more toxic than hydrogen cyanide by weight). 210Po was used to kill Russian dissident and ex-FSB officer Alexander V. Litvinenko in 2006.
