2021: Ionic Radius of Sodium (Na) [& Discovery, Color, Uses ...

All atom's ions have an ionic radius, even Sodium. Ok so what is the ionic radius of a Sodium ion?

In the case of Sodium the ionic radius is 1.02 (+1) Å. Speaking of Sodium, let me walk you through some interesting details...

Sodium Facts

Sodium Ionic Radius

1.02 (+1) Å

Discovery

Discovered By: Sir Humphrey Davy
Year: 1807
Location: England

Atomic Mass

22,989768

Learn more about the atomic mass.

Uses

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.

Sources

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

Description

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

Atomic Symbol

Na

Name Origin

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

State at 20 °C

solid

Atomic Number

11

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. "Ionic Radius of Sodium (Na) [& Discovery, 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.
