Periodic Table Wallpaper – Element Melting Points

This colorful periodic table wallpaper contains each element’s normal melting point.

Color Periodic Table Wallpaper with Melting PointsIn addition to the normal melting point, each cell contains the element’s atomic number, element symbol, element name and atomic mass. The different colors represent different element groups.

The normal melting point is the melting point at 1 atmosphere of pressure. Not all elements melt at normal pressure. For these, the triple point is given with it’s corresponding pressure.

List of Metals

Metal Elements

The highlighted elements are considered the metal elements.

Most elements can be considered metals. They are grouped together in the middle to the left hand side of the periodic table. The metals consist of the alkali metals, alkaline earths, transition metals, lanthanides and actinides.

Properties of Metals

The metals share several common properties, including:

  • solid at room temperature (with the exception of mercury)
  • usually shiny
  • high melting point
  • good conductor of heat
  • good conductor of electricity
  • low ionization energies
  • low electronegativities
  • malleable – able to be pounded into sheets
  • ductile – can be pulled into wire
  • high density (exceptions: lithium, potassium and sodium)
  • corrodes in air or seawater
  • loses electrons in reactions
