Its used for more than just bombs
Martin klaproth found uranium oxide in 1789 in Germany.
He named it after the recently discovered planet Uranus.
But the pure element was isolated by Eugene Peligot in 1841.
Martin klaproth was very successful in science.
Not only did he discover one element but two!! He also discovered Zirconium.
Eugene peligot was less successful in science then martin klaproth ,but never the less he still confirmed uraniums existence.
Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the cold war in the 1940s to 1990s. Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles. Now modern uranium glass is mainly limited to small objects like beads or marbles as scientific or decorative novelties.
Yes there is ,but many people do not realize that seawater has a natural concentration of uranium. The percentage of uranium in seawater is quite low, as you may expect. It has been shown that the uranium concentration of seawater is only about 3 parts per billion, which is about 3 milligrams of uranium per cubic meter. The total volume of the oceans is about 1.37 billion cubic kilometers, so there is a total of about 4.5 billion tons of uranium in seawater. The uranium in the sea water wont affect you because there are only 3 milligrams per cubic meter.
Uranium melts at about 1,132 degrease Celsius.
That’s about 2069.6 degrease Fahrenheit.
But the boiling point is an amazing 4,131 degrease Celsius.
That converted to Fahrenheit is 7,467.8 degrease!!!
Protons, neutrons & electrons
Uranium has 92 protons, 146 neutrons and 92 electrons.
