We elaborate the uses of Einsteinium and atomic properties with characteristics. Einsteinium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic with atomic number 99. Its symbol is Es and it belongs to the group of actinides and its usual state in nature is solid. Einsteinium is located at position 99 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of einsteinium and information about einsteinium and other elements of the periodic table such as cerium, praseodymium, neodymium or promethium. You will also learn what einsteinium is for and you will know its uses through its properties associated with einsteinium such as its atomic number or the usual state in which einsteinium can be found.
You will be able to see qualities of einsteinium such as its melting and boiling point, its magnetic properties or what its chemical symbol is. In addition, here you will find information about its atomic properties such as the distribution of electrons in einsteinium atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
Einsteinium is part of the group of actinides. Actinides that have a higher atomic number cannot be found in nature and their life span is shorter. All isotopes of the actinide group, including einsteinium, are radioactive.
The state of einsteinium in its natural form is solid. Einsteinium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic and belongs to the group of actinides. The atomic number for einsteinium is 99. The chemical symbol for einsteinium is Es.
Atomic properties of einsteinium
The atomic mass of an element is determined by the total mass of neutrons and protons that can be found in a single atom belonging to this element. Regarding its position within the periodic table of elements, it can be found in period 7. Einsteinium has an atomic mass of 252 u.
The electron configuration of einsteinium is [Rn] 5f11 7s2. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element.
