Heat of Fusion of Plutonium (Pu) + Discovery, Color, Sources ...

Heat of fusion is an important (and pratical) atom property, even for Plutonium. Ok, so what is the heat of fusion for an atom of Pu?

Note: Learn more about heat of fusion here.

In the case of Plutonium, heat of fusion is 2.840 kJ/mol. Some cool facts about Plutonium are unknown for most people. Let me walk you through them...

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. "Heat of Fusion of Plutonium (Pu) + Discovery, Color, Sources ..." 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.
