We elaborate the uses of Roentgenium and atomic properties with characteristics. Roentgenium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably metallic silver-white or gray with atomic number 111. Its symbol is Rg and it belongs to the group of transition metals and its usual state in nature is unknown. Roentgenium is located at position 111 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of roentgenium and information about roentgenium and other elements of the periodic table such as gold, darmstadtium, copernicium or scandium. You will also learn what roentgenium is for and you will know what its uses through its properties associated with roentgenium such as its atomic number or the usual state in which roentgenium can be found.
You can see qualities of roentgenium 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 roentgenium atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
The transition metals, also called transition elements, is the group to which roentgenium belongs. In this group of chemical elements to which roentgenium belongs, are those located in the central part of the periodic table, specifically in block d. Among the characteristics that roentgenium 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 Roentgenium is found, are its high hardness, high boiling and melting points, and good conductors of electricity and heat.
The state of roentgen in its natural form is unknown, presumably solid. Roentgenium 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 roentgenium is 111. The chemical symbol for roentgenium is Rg.
Atomic properties of roentgenium
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 roentgenium within the periodic table of the elements, the roentgenium is in group 11 and period 7. The roentgene has an atomic mass of 272 u.
The electron configuration of the roentgenium is probably [Rn] 5f14 6d10 7s1. The electronic configuration of the elements determines the way in which the electrons are structured in the atoms of an element.
