Melting Point of Silicon (Si) [& Color, Sources, Discovery ... 2022

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

In the case of Silicon the melting point is 1410°C. Now let's look at other properties and facts about Silicon...

Silicon Overview

Silicon Melting Point

1410°C

Discovery

Discovered By: Jöns Berzelius
Year: 1824
Location: Sweden

State at 20 °C

Solid

Uses

Used in glass as silicon dioxide (SiO2). Silicon carbide (SiC) is one of the hardest substances known and used in polishing. Also the crystalline form is used in semiconductors.

Sources

Makes up major portion of clay, granite, quartz (SiO2), and sand. Commercial production depends on a reaction between sand (SiO2) and carbon at a temperature of around 2200 °C.

Description

Amorphous form is brown power; crystalline form has gray metallic appearance. Seventh most abundant element in the universe. Second most plentiful element in the earths crust.

Atomic Symbol

Si

Name Origin

Latin: silex, silicus, (flint).

Atomic Mass

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 Silicon 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 Silicon (Si) [& 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.
