Boiling Point of Tungsten (W) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ...

The boiling point is an important physical property for all materials, even Tungsten. Ok but what is the boiling point of an atom of W?

In the case of Tungsten the boiling point is 5660°C. Now let's review some facts about Tungsten that people find interesting. Let me walk you through...

Tungsten Overview

Tungsten Boiling Point

5660°C

Atomic Number

74

Uses

Made into filaments for vacuum tubes and electric lights. Also as contact points in cars. Combined with calcium or magnesium it makes phosphors. Tungsten carbide is extremely hard and is used for making cutting tools and abrasives.

Sources

Occurs in the minerals scheelite (CaWO4) and wolframite [(Fe,Mn)WO4].

Description

Hard, steel-gray to white metal. Highest melting point of all metals.

Atomic Symbol

W

Name Origin

Swedish: tung sten (heavy stone): symbol from its German name wolfram.

State at 20 °C

Solid

Discovery

Discovered By: Fausto and Juan José de Elhuyar
Year: 1783
Location: Spain

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. "Boiling Point of Tungsten (W) [& 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.
