We elaborate the uses of Mendelevium and atomic properties with characteristics. Mendelevium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic with atomic number 101. Its symbol is Md and it belongs to the group of actinides and its usual state in nature is unknown. Mendelevium is located at position 101 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of mendelevium and information about mendelevium and other elements of the periodic table such as cerium, praseodymium, neodymium or promethium. You will also learn what mendelevium is for and you will know its uses through its properties associated with mendelevium such as its atomic number or the usual state in which mendelevium can be found.
You will be able to see qualities of Mendelevium 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 the mendelevium atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
Mendelevium 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 in the actinide group, including mendelevium, are radioactive.
The state of Mendelevium in its natural form is unknown, presumably solid. Mendelevium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably metallic silver white or gray and belongs to the group of actinides. The atomic number for Mendelevium is 101. The chemical symbol for Mendelevium is Md.
Atomic properties of mendelevium
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. Mendelevium has an atomic mass of 258 u.
The electron configuration of the mendelevium is [Rn] 5f13 7s2. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element.
