Maybe in an alloy, but definitely not on its own. The melting point of gallium is only 29 oC, which is below body temperature, so a gallium ring could melt off your finger on a warm day.

Gallium is an attractive looking metal, but it's too reactive to have much ornamental use. It could be sealed inside something transparent to stem the reactivity and keep it from running away in liquid form. Glass could work if care was taken to allow space in the chamber for the metal to expand when it solidifies in cooler temperatures.

Well, you could, but it may not last well, as the melting point for this metal is 29.75oC.

This metal decreases in density as it approaches its freezing point, as does water, and Silicon.

Yes you can just use Playdough as a mold than melt your gallium in a cup of warm water(86 degrees

Fahrenheit or higher) than pour your gallium in the mold. Wait a half hour,than pull your creation out of the mold and done

No,because it melts at 30C and your normal body temperature is about 37C. So,it would melt in your hand.

There would be a problem that gallium melts at body temperature.

What color LEDs in Gallium used to make?

The most comon form of LED made from Gallium Arsenide is gold and it can also be blue.


How many grams of gallium carbonate to make 55 moles of gallium oxide?

Ga2(CO3)3 -> Ga2O3 + 3CO2 Gallium (III) Carbonate and Gallium Oxide are equimolar so 55 moles of gallium carbonate must be used. The Molar Mass of Gallium (III) Carbonate is about 319 g/mol 319 g/mol (55 mols) = 17,545 g


Is gallium and gallium nitrate the same?

Gallium is the element. It is a low melting silvery soft metal. Gallium nitate is a compound containing gallium, a salt of gallium(III), Ga(NO3)3


Is gallium a metal nonmetal?

Gallium is a metal. It is next to germanium, a semi-metal.


What is gallium used for?

Element Gallium is used to make up compounds such as Gallium nitride and Gallium asenide. These compounds is used to make solid-state applying in light- emitting diodes(LEDs) primarily.More over some compounds of Gallium is also applied in medicine such as chemical thernometer despite of mercury thernometer.Gallium is alloyed with Plutonium (about 3% Gallium) to force the hard brittle alpha phase of Plutonium normal at room temperature into the soft ductile delta phase in Nuclear Weapons to make it workable and more easily machinable.Gallium is very effective for finding neutrinos when used inside a telescope. An example of this use is the SAGE experiment at the Baksan Neutrino Observatory in Russia or the GALLEX neutrino detector operated in the early 1990s in an Italian mountain tunnel.Gallium is used in several eutectic low temperature melting lead-free solder alloys.dopant in semiconductor manufacturing.alloy agent with plutonium to make it easier to process for making bombs.half of the semiconductor alloy gallium-arsenide for high speed transistors.
