    • 3 Pages

    The element Magnesium got its name when it was discovered. It is a silvery white metal that is highly reactive. Its chemical symbol is Mg and atomic number is 12. Its atomic mass is relatively 24. Therefore, it has 12 protons, 12 neutrons, and 12 electrons. According to Steve Gagnon in “The Element Magnesium” Magnesium was isolated by Sir Humphry Davy, an English chemist, through the electrolysis of a mixture of magnesium oxide and mercuric oxide in 1808. Magnesium has a melting point of 650°…

    physical properties of each unknown element. To find the unknown elements we looked at the characteristics of the other elements and grouped the ones that were similar and belonged in the same column. By looking at the characteristics of the unknown elements if it seemed to belong in a group with others with a blank we assumed it belonged there. Mendeleev was a scientist who came up with the original periodic table which he founded 25 years before knowing the existence of electrons. He wrote…

    all of the elements that have been discovered and has them arranged and by their chemical properties, atomic masses, and electron configurations. In order to construct the periodic table, every element had to be discovered. Elements such as gold, tin, lead, and copper have been widely known and used since ancient times, however, the first discovery of an element wasn’t made until 1649 by Hennig Brand when he discovered phosphorus. Over the next 200 years, chemists would acquire the basic…

    the Most Important Element Alrecus What is Oxygen? Oxygen is one of the periodic table elements. Oxygen is also a gaseous chemical. Oxygen makes up more than twenty percent of the Earth's air. Oxygen is a dry and unscented. Oxygen is exceptionally receptive. Oxygen was found interestingly by a Swedish Chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele, in 1772. Joseph Priestly, an 112, freely, found oxygen in 1774 and distributed his discoveries that year, three years before Scheele distributed. Antoine Lavoisier,…

    Group 1 Elements Referring to the table created from observing the characteristics of the three elements from group 1, Lithium, Sodium, and Potassium, we can see that they all share the appearance of being lustrous and metallic, with a silvery-white presentation, and it is also known that they are all alkali metals. It is also noticed that they are all soft metals easily cut with a knife rather than most metals such as calcium or iron. All three elements are stored within oil, with Sodium as an…

    What are group one elements? Group one elements are alkali metals. The physical properties of group one elements are that they are shiny and the alkali metals are very soft. Lithium is the hardest alkali metal and they become softer as you go down the group. The chemical properties of group one is that they’re very reactive when mixed with water or when in contact with the air. Each element in group one has one electron in their outermost shell. Also, group one elements get more reactive as you…

    The atomic number to my element is 11, the mass number is 23, the number of neutrons is 12, the protons are 11 and the electrons are also 11, the electron configuration of my element is 1s22s22p63s1. The person who discovered my element is Humphry Davy. He discovered sodium in 1807. Origin of sodium is derived from the English word ‘soda’. The appearance of sodium is soft metal that tarnishes within seconds of being exposed to the air. It also reacts vigorously with water. Used as a…
