|My Nucleus has 41 protons.|
I have only one stable isotope: Niobium-93, which has 41 protons plus 52 neutrons.
I have 8 radioisotopes, with half-lives ranging from 1 hour to 37 million years.
My average atomic mass is:
|When neutral, I have 41 electrons.|
Here is my Electron Configuration:
1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 4s2 3d10 4p6 5s1 4d4
My Shell Structure is:
[density, conductivity, malleability, state at room temperature...]
(Body, Planet, Universe)
There's no data on my presence in the human body, so there's probably very little there.
I am 4 ppb by mass of the Earth's crust,
and 2 ppb by mass of the Universe.
|I am Niobium!|
Niobium (III) Fluoride
Niobium (IV) Chloride
Niobium (II) Oxide
[When and how I was discovered, and by whom]
[The history of my uses]
I am used in some stainless steel alloys, arc-welding rods, and in making super-conductive magnets. I also have uses in the nuclear industries, the space program, and in body art (due to my blue-ish color!).
