3History of FluorineFluorine was discovered by a chemist named Joseph Henri Moissan in He won the Nobel Prize in 1906 in chemistry, because he was the first person to isolate fluorine.The name Fluorine comes from the Latin word “Fluere” which means to flow.
4Where fluorine existsFluorine is found in drinking water and toothpaste(fluoride) to prevent cavities.
5Uses of fluorineHydrofluoric acid can dissolve glass and is used to etch the glass in light bulbs. It is also used in uranium processing.
6Form Fluorine is usually found as a pale yellow color. Its structure is cubic crystals in the solid phase.
7Where is it found?Fluorine is NOT man-made, it is natural and found in the Earth’s crust and in nature.
8physical properties Melting point- -219.6 degrees C Boiling point degrees CDensity- 293Kphysical properties
9State of matterGAS(Halogen)Fluorine is a gas at room temperature
10Chemical propertiesFluorine is highly reactive and corrosive. It’s the most chemically reactive and electronegative of all the elements! It is also flammable. It is so reactive that glass, metals, water, and other substances burst into flames when reacted with fluorine.
