TUNGSTEN - ELEMENT ASSIGNMENT
This storyboard does not have a description.
Tungsten is chemical element, with symbol "W" and an atomic number of 74. It is a rare metal found naturally on Earth, and was discovered in 1781.
The metal has many uses including, Arc-welding, High temperature furnaces, missiles, and other temperature applications.
Speaking of which, a fun fact about Tungsten is that it has the HIGHEST melting point of all the elements. It's also is the heaviest of all biological metals.
Tungsten is very resistant to acid attacks, exceptions being mixtures with higher concentrations of nitric and hydrofluoric acids.
Tungsten is a hard solid with colours that range from grey to white. It is a lustrous metal, with a melting point of 3 410°C. It is also known to conduct electricity quite well.
Tungsten is used all around the world, yet despite that the environmental effects of the metal are almost unknown. Dissolution of Tungsten powder significantly acidifies soils, this also results in the death of bacterial components and the increase of fungi.
Unless you've been given very large amounts of tungsten, you wouldn't be harmed at all. Animals that had been given the amounts, have seen to have gotten breathing and behavioral problems. However, you are not likely to experience any health effects caused by tungsten since you would need to be given large amounts.
