Atomic Volume of Magnesium (Mg) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ...

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

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

In the case of Magnesium the atomic volume is 13.97 cm³/mol. There are interesting things about Magnesium that people don't know about...

Magnesium Data

Magnesium Atomic Volume

13.97 cm³/mol

State at 20 °C

solid

Uses

Used in alloys to make airplanes, missiles and other uses for light metals. Has structural properties similar to aluminium. But since it is flammable at temperatures of burning gasoline, its uses are limited.

Atomic Mass

24,305

Learn more about the atomic mass.

Sources

Usually obtained by electrolysis of melted magnesium chloride (MgCl2) found in sea water. Each cubic mile of seawater contains about 12 billion pounds of magnesium.

Description

Lightweight, malleable, silvery-white metal. Eighth most abundant element in the universe. Seventh most abundant element in the earth's crust.

Atomic Number

12

Discovery

Discovered By: Sir Humphrey Davy
Year: 1808
Location: England

Atomic Symbol

Mg

Name Origin

From Magnesia ancient city in district of Thessaly, Greece.

Video

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

Citation

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 Magnesium (Mg) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. 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

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to make your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like Magnesium atomic volume and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)

Download and enjoy this complete and colored periodic table for you to edit and enjoy. It's in an editable excel format or .ods (open).
