Beryllium

Beryllium is a chemical element with the atomic number 4 and the symbol Be. The main source of Beryllium is the stars, though it is relatively shortlived when synthesized. It is a relatively rare element in the universe as well as on Earth.

Beryllium

Is the element beryllium radioactive?

It depends on what isotope you are talking about. Beryllium-9 is stable, and thus, not radioactive. Beryllium-10 is unstable, and thus, radioactive, and it has a half-life of a million and a half years. The other 10 isotopes of beryllium are also unstable, and also radioactive, and they have very short half-lives, the longest of which is 53 days, beryllium-7.

Where was beryllium discovered?

It was found in emeralds from the mountains of France and California. ------ The first mineral with beryllium was an emerald from Peru, studied by the German chemist Klaproth; similar gems were analyzed by Bindheim and Hauy. In 1798 the French chemist Vauquelin identified in the gems a new metal oxide, initially called glucina. After 30 years Bussy and Wohler, separately, isolated the pure metal by reacting potassium and beryllium chloride.

What is the formula for oxide?

"oxide" has no formula. An oxide is just a compound (or atom) that has had its valence orbitals satisfied with oxygen molecules. There are a vast number of oxides, each with different formulas.

ie.

Iron (III) Oxide: Fe2O3

Potassium Oxide: K2O

etc.

How did beryllium get where it is now?

By blowing Lithium, duh. Seriously though, I'm guessing you mean why is beryllium such a prominent material in modern technology, not why it has atomic number 4 on the periodic table... which is because it has 4 protons in its nucleus. The answer to this is due to beryllium's extraordinary physical properties. Its very low density, along with a melting point of 1278 C and an ability to remain stable at high temperatures while resisting thermal expansion make beryllium ideal for use in alloys, especially in the fields of aeronautics and particle physics, where its capability for withstanding many types of radiation is of vital importance.
