What are sum interesting facts about mercury(element) and whats the normal phase? What family does it belong to
im assuming this is for some homework assignment?
well, I have my gr 12 chemistry and im going to collage for chemical engineering technologiest next year so ill help you if I can.
interesting fact: mecury is the only liquid metal at room temp. mecury was used in thermometers, mecury is posionous, mecury is created by rotting logs (when a dam is put in, and a woodland area is flooded, much mercury is created.
whats its normal phase? if by phase you mean state- then at room temp. mecury is a liquid
I dont know for sure, but I think mecury is a trasition metal.
isn't the fact it is metal and, I think, it is magnetic. so it accualy attracts itself so it forms a sphere.(but it could be surface tension, not magnitism)
