Properties of Laurentium
The transition metals, also called transition elements, is the group to which laurentium belongs. In this group of chemical elements to which laurentium belongs, are those located in the central part of the periodic table, specifically in block d. Among the characteristics that laurentium has, as well as those of the rest of transition metals, is that of including in its electronic configuration the d orbital, partially filled with electrons. Properties of this type of metal, among which laurentium is found, are its high hardness, having high boiling and melting points and being good conductors of electricity and heat.
The state of laurentum in its natural form is unknown, presumably solid. Laurentium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic, and belongs to the group of transition metals. The atomic number for laurentium is 103. The chemical symbol for laurentium is Lr.
Atomic Properties of Laurentium
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 the position where to find the laurentium within the periodic table of the elements, the laurentum is in group 3 and period 7. Laurentium has an atomic mass of 262 u.
The electron configuration of laurentium is [Rn] 5f14 7s27d1. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element.
