History of the element
Properties and uses of Uranium
1. Hard, Ductile
2. Malleable, Radioactive
3. Dense, and Silver-white
Uranium is a very important element because it led us to victory in the world war II. Being used in one of the two atomic bomcs.However it is used to provide nuclear fuel to generate nuclear power stations.It is also used in nuclear reactors and nuclear bombs.
3 compounds with the element
uranium tetrafloride (UF4)
Uranium oxides (UO2)
*all of these compounds are ionic compounds because uranium is a metal bonding with a non-metal.
periodic table info.
atomic number- 92
number of protons- 92 neutrons- 143electrons- 92
group names and properties
- all are radioactive
- actinides are highly electropositive
- the metals tarnish readily in the air
- actinides combine directly with most nonmetals
- they react with boiling water or dilute acid to reduce hydrogen gas
- very dense metals with distinctive strictures, numerous allotropes may be formed
reaction type- synthesis
mole to mole ratio- 4H-1H,2H-1E
name- uranium oxide
type or bonding- ionic
%comp of uranium= 696/824= 84.45%
