2022: Melting Point of Phosphorus (P) [& Color, Sources, Discovery ...

One of the most important (and useful) physical properties is the melting point. All atoms will 'melt' at some point, even Phosphorus. Ok but what is the melting point of an atom of P?

In the case of Phosphorus the melting point is 44.1°C. Now let's look at other properties and facts about Phosphorus...

Phosphorus Overview

Phosphorus Melting Point

44.1°C

Discovery

Discovered By: Hennig Brand
Year: 1669
Location: Germany

State at 20 °C

solid

Uses

Used in the production of fertilizers and detergents. Some is used in fireworks, safety matches, and incendiary weapons. Also some applications for it and some of its compounds which glow in the dark.

Sources

Found most often in phosphate rock. Pure phosphorus is obtained by heating a mixture of phosphate rock, coke, and silica to about 1450 °C.

Description

Soft white waxy phosphorescent solid, brownish-red powder or black solid.

Atomic Symbol

P

Name Origin

Greek: phosphoros, (bringer of light).

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

Colored Periodic Table

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to maker your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like Phosphorus melting point and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)

Download and enjoy this complete and colored periodic table for you to edit and enjoy. It's in an editable excel format or .ods (open).

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. "Melting Point of Phosphorus (P) [& 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.
