Zinc (#30, Zn)
Zinc has an Atomic Radius of 134 pm, an Ionization Energy of 9.3942 ev, and an Electronegativity of 1.65 on the Pauling Scale. Also, Zinc tends to bond ionically.
Zinc Uses and Abundance
Zinc is used commonly in die-castings, other alloys such as brass and nickel, in sunscreen, and to galvanize iron so it doesn't corrode. An example of a compound containing zinc would be Zinc Oxide (ZnO). Zinc's abundance is mathematically calculated as 7.0 x 10 milligrams per killogram.
Other interesting facts about zinc are that it is naturally a bluish silver color, reacts with both acids and alkalis, and burns a bright blue-green flame.
