3 Beryllium It is a toxic bivalent element Steel gray, strong, light gray Has one of the highest melting points of the light of metals Nonmagnetic Is in period two

4 Crystal Structure Space group P63/mm structure: hexagonal closed-packed Non-interactively

5 Beryllium Symbol Be Atomic Weight Density g/cc Melting point 1287C Boiling Point 2470C Number of protons:4 Electrons: 4 Neutrons: 5

6 Atomic Properties Beryllium is in group 2 Electron Configuration: 1s 2, 2s 2

7 Uses of Beryllium Makes x-ray tubing for glass windows Makes emeralds for jewelry

8 Uses of Beryllium Electric insulators Beryllium copper Beryllium Copper Spring Washer Fitting Ring for Surefire

9 Where Beryllium is found Beryllium is found in many different types of minerals including emerald and aquamarines Beryllium was found by Louis-Nicholas Vauqeulin,1798

10 Chemical Properties Beryllium reacts with acids and with water to form hydrogen gas It reacts briefly with oxygen in the air to form beryllium oxide (BeO). The beryllium oxide forms a thin skin on the surface of the metal that prevents the metal from reacting further with oxygen.

11 Beryllium Fun Facts Beryllium is used in missiles, and spacecraft A little toxic dust is more than sufficient to kill a human. YouTube - Beryllium
