Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Tungsten (W) & Facts, Color, Uses ...

Size of things changes depending on the coefficient of thermal expansion. It's even the case for Tungsten. Ok, so what is the coefficient of thermal expansion for an atom of W?

Note: Learn more about the coefficient of thermal expansion here.

In the case of Tungsten this thermal coefficient is 4.5 10^-6 K^-1. By the way, did you know there are cool facts about Tungsten that most don't know? Check this...

Tungsten Data

Tungsten Coefficient of Thermal Expansion

4.5 10^-6 K^-1

Atomic Number

74

Learn more about the atomic number.

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.

Atomic Mass

183,84

Learn more about the atomic mass.

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

Discovery

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

State at 20 °C

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. "Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Tungsten (W) & Facts, Color, Uses ..." 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.
