I know it's really cold out, but if it gets any hotter, I'll melt due to my weak atomic bonds and increasing kinetic energy!
Hi, my name is Eddie and I'm a molecule of mercury.
Sorry about it being so cold, but this is as hot as I can get! My melting point, when I freeze, or turn from a solid to a liquid, is -37O degrees!
I know I'm a pretty peculiar element, but it's pretty cool! For example, I have one of the lowest temperature ranges of any element, because my freezing point is at 37O degrees and my boiling point is at 674O degrees!
I'm lucky that I'm in such a temperate environment for myself, as my typical environments have widely variating temperatures, so my normal changes in phase of matter are either deposition, when matter changes directly from a gas to a solid, or sublimation, which is the opposite of deposition.
It seems that the temperature has gotten the better of me, as it has vaporized my molecules.
Yay! After the sun went down, I began to condense back into a liquid!
