Because I think you are BeAuTiful."

 

Status update:

10/30/13

I am so excited to announce that Beryllium Hydroxide added with Sulfuric acid makes Beryllium Sulfate and water!!!

Sulfuric acid + Beryllium Hydroxide → Berylium Sulfate + 2 Water

H2SO4 + Be(OH)2 → Be SO4 + 2H2O

Yay. FINALLY. I have been waiting for this moment! Yttrium and I are in a covalent bond relationship!

10/8

OMG!! IM FLYING!!! AIRCRAFTS ARE MY LIFE. 

10/7

Uh oh.. apparently I am in a nuclear weapon.. Why am I so cruel to innocent people?

10/6

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO CARELESS ON THE ROAD? CARS ARE RUNNING OVER ME 24/7!


Overview:

I am the lightest Alkaline Earth Metal shown as Be on the periodic table of elements. I am steel gray at room temperature, and I have the highest melting point out of the other elements in my group. I am relatively rare to find in the Earth's crust and the universe, and I can be found as foils, lumps, and powders. I react the most with water. All of my compounds are covalent, and I am very similar to aluminum(Al). 

Information: 

 

Relationship Status: 

Covalent bond 

Primary Relationship: 

Yttrium 

network: 

metal 

valence electrons:

2

reactivity:

very reactive, reacts most with water 
state of matter:  solid 
Location on Periodic Table: Alkaline Earth Metals, Period 2

Birthday: 

1798 

Hometown: 

Louis Nicolas Vauquelin, France

Movies: 

"The Beryllium Eater" from Route 66 (Season 1 Episode 10) 

Activities & Interests:

I have a special ability to scratch glass. Although I am not interested in helping plants, I am a chemical component for rocks and minerals. I love combining to  make my natural compound, emerald. 

I enjoy bonding with nonmetals; I am a part of covalent bonds. There are four types of reactions: synthesis, decomposition, single-displacement, and double-displacement.  A synthesis reaction is when two substances combine to form one new substance. Decomposition is when a substance breaks down to form two or more simpler substances. A single displacement reaction is when a element takes the place of another element is a certain compound. The last type of reaction is a double displacement reaction, where two compounds exchange the elements with one another. For example, BeCl2 + 2AgNO3 --> Be(NO3)2 + 2AgCl is a double replacement reaction.

 

 


Places:

"check in" with at least three places the element can be found 

10/28/13

Beryllium chloride reacts with silver nitrate to form aqueous beryllium nitrate and silver chloride(powder).

balanced chemical equation: BeCl2 + 2AgNO3 --> Be(NO3)2 + 2AgCl

10/9/13

I am at Muzo, Colombia, which is where the most emerald(my compound) is found!

10/8 

Aiya.. I'm at Shanghai, China, and I see a lot of driods here (China had the most Beryllium)!

10/7

Wow, I'm at Savannah, and some hospitals seem to have more x-ray viewers than others!

 


Photos:     

Create 2 photo albums:

  • atom and bonding diagrams - these will be done in class and will take time
  • fun images - pictures that contain the element

 every photo must have a caption 

- tag other elements in the pictures

You said that cars are always running over you. Where are you in the roads so I can be more careful as to not run over you?

I am an ingredient in the asphalt, so I am almost everywhere on the road. I am used in a lot of unusual things, such as nuclear bombs and aircrafts.

Heyy, we are right next to each other in a chemical equation! I knew we always had chemistry. Would you like to be my primary relationship partner? <3
