Strength. Titanium and diamonds are both strong, have very high melting points and resist corrosion. However, both substances are also very expensive; their high cost is prohibitive in using them in widespread industrial applications that might otherwise benefit from their structural properties.

What is the lightest element lowest atomic mass on the periodic table?
What is the world’s most expensive element?
As of 2020, the most expensive non-synthetic element by both mass and volume is rhodium. It is followed by caesium, iridium and palladium by mass and iridium, gold and platinum by volume. Carbon in the form of diamond can be more expensive than rhodium.
What is the cost of element 118?
Assuming we ran the LHC for a year, the price of Oganesson, probably a few atoms, would come out to a cost of at least $5.75 billion.
Where is Plutonium Found?
Plutonium generally isn’t found in nature. Trace elements of plutonium are found in naturally occurring uranium ores. Here, it is formed in a way similar to neptunium: by irradiation of natural uranium with neutrons followed by beta decay. Primarily, however, plutonium is a byproduct of the nuclear power industry.
How was californium named?
Origin of the name Californium is named for the university and state of California, where the element was first made.
Who found californium?
Glenn T. Seaborg
Who found mendelevium?
Is mendelevium man made?
Mendelevium has 14 recognized isotopes. The most stable one is 258Md, which has a half-life of about 51.5 days. Mendelevium is artificially produced, and it has never been made in great quantities.
What is the name of element 101?
How did lanthanum get its name?
The name is derived from the Greek ‘lanthanein’, meaning to lie hidden.
Who named lanthanum?
Carl Gustaf Mosander
We all know that, apparently, clear diamonds are a girl’s best friend. The problem is, they can just be so expensive to buy! As it turns out, they aren’t the…
