I was walking with my cat one day...
Oh no, it's starting to rain. lets go inside
It started raining so we went inside
oh look some cereal
Wow. I'm a bit hungry now
AHHHH! im shrinking
NO! That's not cereal
We went through the electron shell
The electron shell holds 2 electrons in the first shell, 8 in the second shell, 2 in the third shell and 8 in the fourth shell
It's electron configuration is 2,8,2
Magnesium has 12 electrons. This means it has 2 in the first shell, 8 in the second shell and 2 in the third shell
Valence electrons are those in the outer shell. Magnesium has 8
I was dragged through the nucleus
The atomic number is the number of protons. magnesium has 12
Magnesium's symbol is (Mg) the first letter is always capital while the 2nd is lowercase
It is the nucleus. The nucleus is where protons and neutrons are found
The Nucleus started growing...
Magnesium is in group 2, period 3.
A period is the rows in the periodic table. the groups are columns of elements
Magnesium was discovered in 1755 by Joseph Black and Humphrey Davey in England
It stopped raining... we kept walking
Well that was interesting.. lets keep walking
The mass number is the protons + neutrons. Magnesium has 12 protons and neutrons so the mass number is 24
Group 3 means that magnesium is a transition metal
Magnesium is an important nutrient that the body needs to function
