Carbon vs Silicon

Carbon vs Silicon

Storyboard Text

  • Afternoon Silicon, the reason why I'm I'm involved in everything is because I'm the building block for life.
  • Hey Carbon, why does everything involve you?
  • My atomic number is 6 and since I have four valence electrons, I can bond with 4 other atoms and create various types of bonds.
  • Big deal, my atomic number is 14, but I also have 4 valence electrons, but somehow I can't bond with the same amount of atoms as you.
  • My electronegativity is 1.9 and my atomic radius is 114 pm. I guess being bigger doesn't always mean better.
  • That's because my electronegativity is 2.6 and atomic radius is 75 pm than yours.
  • As of current events, I am the most necessary element needed to support life.
  • Perhaps for now, but I am a close replacement for you on earth so don't think that you will be the building block for life for long.
  • Whatever you say bud.
  • For one day I, silicon will be the building block for life on another planet.
