Piper, Cameryn, Billy
Atomic Mass:24 amu
uses: Duralumin and magnalium are alloys of magnesium. The metal is also used in pyrotechnics, especially in incendiary bombs, signals, and flares, and as a fuse for thermite. It is used in photographic flashbulbs and is added to some rocket and missile fuels.
Who discovered it? Joseph BlackNumber of Valence Electrons: 2
Atomic Mass:226 amu
Uses:Radium had been used to make self-luminous paints for watches, aircraft instrument dials and other instrumentation, but has largely been replaced by cobalt-60, a less dangerous radioactive source. A mixture of radium and beryllium will emit neutrons and is used as a neutron source
