Scientists categorize the chemical components as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids mostly according to the weather' skills to behavior electrical energy at common temperatures and pressures, yet there are different differences taken into consideration whilst classifying the weather within the periodic desk. The alkali metals, for instance, are metals, yet have such specific homes that they're given their very own class. an analogous is right for the alkaline earths.

If the bag did not deflate again slightly, the inflated bag would be so hard as to injure the passenger. A slightly deflated bag, (continued on page 22) 19 20 ALKALI & ALKALINE EARTH METALS THE PHYSICS OF SODIUM VAPOR LAMPS Many street lights and building security lights give off a constant yellow glow. 6-nm wavelength. 3 nm. In a lamp filled with sodium gas, a voltage applied to electrodes at either end of the tube causes electrons to detach from the anode and accelerate toward the cathode. The electrons collide with the sodium vapor atoms, providing the energy for electrons within the sodium atoms to jump to higher levels.

Lithium hydroxide is water soluble, however, which is undesirable in situations where less care might be taken to keep it dry. The Toshiba company has been working on a lithium silicate absorption device that could turn out to be cost-effective for use in absorbing CO2 from car exhaust. The difficulty is in making a device small enough to fit in a typical automobile exhaust system. Lithium tates message transmission to neurons (synaptic connections) in the brain. Reuptake of glutamate is an important factor, and lithium seems to be able to adjust the limits of glutamate uptake or retention, providing bounds that keep a patient from experiencing extremes.

Rubidium’s presence was indicated by two previously unknown deep red lines in the mineral’s spectrum. The name “rubidium” comes from the Latin word rubidus, which refers to red of the deepest color. Bunsen succeeded in isolating rubidium metal itself. Bunsen was extremely famous in his own time and revered by his students for his part in the development of the technique of spectral analysis; numerous other elements were later discovered by chemists using Bunsen and Kirchoff ’s spectroscope. Those elements include gal- Part I: Alkali Metals lium, helium, holmium, indium, lutetium, neodymium, praseodymium, thallium, thulium, and ytterbium.
