If mercury is a metal,why does it filch a fluid form.?
All metals take a liquid form if you heat up them up a bit. Mercury just goes fluid with less warm than the others.
I won't fib, because I honestly don't know why it is a liquid.
But you are wrong when you assume metlas are always solid, There are 5 metals that are found as juice at or near room temperature
Mercury, Caesium, francium, gallium, and rubidium, Bromine which is a non-metal is also found as a soft.
Like I said i'm not sure why, but some elements are found in liquid forms for no adjectives reason its jsut the way things are.
It's melted. Mercury's melting point is -38.83 °C. Mercury is one of five metals that are soft at or near room temperature and pressure. The others are the metals caesium, francium, gallium, and rubidium, and the non-metal bromine. Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_(el…
All metals become liquid at some temperature and pressure. Hg basically happens to be liquid at room heat and atmospheric pressure.
It will solidify at 234.32 K
(-38.83 °C, -37.89 °F) Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_(el…
other metals can be juice
i.e gold, silver.....
because room temperature is above its melting point.
Simply because you are exposed to it surrounded by its liquid state. The melting point of Mercury is -38.87 o C. That's why you can't use mercury termometers below -38°C...... And above -38°C, it's duplicate as a melted ice cube.... solution!
