FC: By: Daniel Cather | The Alkalimetals

1: DATE_______ | The Alkalimetals are named so because they are particularly good at making alkali (strong bases) when given water. This family is on the farthest left of the great periodic tree. As the family moves down the tree each member seems to get larger in the atomic radii and more dense. The members in this book are Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, and Rubidium

2: Name: Lithium Nickname: Li Birth Date: 1817 Birth Mass: 6.941 amu Birth Height: 3 Race: Alkali Metal Gender: Solid Physician: Johan August Arfwedson Place of Birth: Stockholm, Sweden | 3 | 4 | 2 | 3 | 1

4: Discovery: 1817 by Johan August Arfwedson Prior Uses: Lithium is mainly used in medicine Fun Facts: Many stars use lithium for fuel | History

5: Personality | Melting Point: 356.972 F Boiling Point: 2448 F Density: 0.53 g/cm 3 Color: silvery Abundance on Earth: Makes up .0007% of Earth's crust

6: Career | Currently used in dry-cell batteries and nuclear reactors. It has also been used to treat manic depressives.

7: Name: Sodium Nickname: Na Birth Date: 1807 Birth Mass: 22.98977 amu Birth Height: 11 Race: Alkali Metal Gender: Solid Physician: Sir Humphry David Place of Birth: England | 11 | 12 | 11 | 3 | 1

9: History | Discovery: 1807 by Sir Humphry David Prior Uses: Has been used for hundreds of years on food. Fun Facts: It is essential for human nutrition and needed for many chemical processes

10: Personality | Melting Point: 207.9 F Boiling Point: 1621 F Density: 0.968 g/cm 3 Color: silvery white Abundance on Earth: Sodium makes up about 2.6% of Earth's crust

11: Career | Sodium is mainly used as a flavor enhancer but is also used in liquid soap

12: Name: Potassium Nickname: K Birth Date: 1807 Birth Mass: 39.0983 amu Birth Height: 19 Race: Alkali Metal Gender: Solid Physician: Sir Humphry David Place of Birth: England | 19 | 20 | 19 | 3 | 1

14: History | Discovery: 1807 by Sir Humphry David Prior Uses: When combined with nitrogen it can be used as a powerful explosive Fun Facts: It reacts so violently with water it bursts into flames

15: Personality | Melting Point: 146.08 F Boiling Point: 1398 F Density: 0. 89g/cm 3 Color: silvery white Abundance on Earth: Potassium makes up about 1.5% of Earth's crust

16: Career | The most important use of potassium now is to treat hypokalemia (low potassium)

17: Name: Rubidium Nickname: Rb Birth Date: 1861 Birth Mass: 85.4678amu Birth Height: 37 Race: Alkali Metal Gender: Solid Physician: Bunsen and Kirchhoff Place of Birth: Germany | 37 | 49 | 37 | 4 | 1

19: History | Discovery: 1861 by Bunsen and Kirchhoff Prior Uses: Used in fireworks to produce purple color Fun Facts: Some research teams are attempting to use it in very thin batteries

20: Personality | Melting Point: 102.002 F Boiling Point: 1270.4 F Density: 1.532g/cm 3 Color: silvery white Abundance on Earth:Rubidium makes up 90 ppm of Earth's Crust

21: Career | Rubidium is used for many things. One of these things is as a target in laser labs because as a metal it evaporates easily
