Moreover, what are some of the physical and chemical properties of mercury?
Mercury has a melting point of -38.9oC, a boiling point of 356.7oC, and is the only metal to remain in liquid form at room temperature. Droplets of liquid mercury are shiny and silver-white with a high surface tension, appearing rounded when on flat surfaces.
Subsequently, question is, what property of mercury makes it dangerous? density
Thereof, what are three physical properties of mercury?
The Physical Properties of Mercury are as follows:
- Color : Silver-White mirror-like appearance.
- Luster : Mirror like.
- Conductivity : Good transmission of heat or electricity.
- Surface Tension : High surface tension.
- Density : High Density.
What is the chemical structure of Mercury?
Mercury is an element with atomic symbol Hg, atomic number 80, and atomic weight 200.59; a heavy, silvery-white metal, liquid at room temperature, a rather poor conductor of heat and a fair conductor of electricity.
