Enthalpy of Fusion of Sodium (Na) + Color, Sources, Discovery ...

Energy and heat may change a substance's state from solid to liquid (Fusion). Such energy may be called enthalpy of fusion and it is important even for Sodium. Ok, so what is the enthalpy of fusion for an atom of Na?

Note: Learn more about the enthalpy of fusion here.

In the case of Sodium, enthalpy of fusion is 2.60 Kilojoules per mole. There are non heat related facts about Sodium that you might like to know. I'll walk you through...

Sodium Facts

Sodium Enthalpy of Fusion

2.60 Kilojoules per mole

State at 20 °C



There are few uses for the pure metal, however its compounds are used in medicine, agriculture and photography. Sodium chloride (NaCl) is table salt. Liquid sodium is sometimes used to cool nuclear reactors.

Atomic Mass

Obtained by electrolysis of melted sodium chloride (salt), borax and cryolite.


Soft silvery-white metal. Sixth most abundant element in the earth's crust. Burns in air with a brilliant white flame.

Atomic Symbol


Name Origin

Medieval Latin: sodanum, (headache remedy); symbol from Latin natrium, (sodium carbonate).

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. "Enthalpy of Fusion of Sodium (Na) + Color, Sources, 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
