What are the properties of your element?
These properties include color, density, melting point, boiling point, and thermal and electrical conductivity. While some of these properties are due chiefly to the electronic structure of the element, others are more closely related to properties of the nucleus, e.g., mass number.
What is the periodic property?
Periodic property : The physical and chemical properties of elements are related to their electronic configuration particularly the outershell configurations. The electronic configuration of valence shell of any two elements in a given period is not same. This is called periodic property.
What are the 4 periodic properties?
Major periodic trends include: electronegativity, ionization energy, electron affinity, atomic radius, melting point, and metallic character.
What are the characteristics and properties of gold?
The boiling point of gold is between 5100-5200 ºF.
What elements are found with gold or in gold?
Gold is pronounced as GOLD. An attractive and highly valued metal, gold has been known for at least 5500 years. Gold is sometimes found free in nature but it is usually found in conjunction with silver, quartz (SiO 2 ), calcite (CaCO 3 ), lead, tellurium, zinc or copper .
Does gold combine with other elements?
Gold is unreactive, so it does not combine with other elements. Most metals are more reactive and are found combined with other elements in rocks. Iron, for example, is usually combined with oxygen. The rocks in which metals are found are called ores.
What are two chemical properties of gold?
Gold is a chemical element. Its chemical symbol is Au and its atomic number is 79. Compared to other metals, gold is less chemically reactive. Gold is a good conductor of electricity and heat. Gold is shiny, soft and dense. It is also malleable, which means it can easily be beaten into thin sheets or other shapes.
