Ni - Nickel Atomic # 28 Atomic Mass of 59 Group 10 Period 4
It has... 28 protons, 31 neutrons, and 28 electronns! It is a metal, and is a good conductor, malleable, and ductile.
That's kind of cool, I guess.
Nickel was identified by Axel Cronstedt in 1751. He was from Sweden and studied at Uppsala in mathematics and the Bergs-Kollegium as an observer. He is credited with creating an experimental procedure that has to do with the systemic use of blowpipes for analyzing the chemical composition of minerals.
Nickel has a melting point of 2,651° Farenheit. It has a boiling point of 5,275° Farenheit. It's normal phase is solid, it has 4 enery levels, and being a transition metal, it's number of valence electrons is unclear, normally wavering between 2 or 10.
You know, this is actually pretty cool! Especially the melting and boiling points. Science is AMAZING!
