Atomic Volume of Gadolinium (Gd) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ... 2022

Atoms have a theoretical atomic volume, even Gadolinium. Ok, so what is the atomic radius of Gadolinium?

Note: Learn more about the molar (or atomic) volume here.

In the case of Gadolinium the atomic volume is 19.9 cm³/mol. There are interesting things about Gadolinium that people don't know about...

Are you having trouble understanding the basics of atomic elements? This video will walk you through:
  • What is an element
  • What is a substance
  • What Elements look like
  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances


When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Atomic Volume of Gadolinium (Gd) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ..." Materials. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.

Colored Periodic Table
