What is the element Meitnerium as on the Periodic Table?


Definition of the Meitnerium Element
A short-lived radioactive element that is artificially produced. Meitnerium is not found free in the environment, since it is a synthetic element. Other Name - Unnilennium (Une). The Atomic Number of this element is 109 and the Element Symbol is Mt.

Origin / Meaning of the name Meitnerium
Named in honour of Lise Meitner the Austrian physicist and mathematician who discovered the element protactinium.

 

Periodic Table Group and Classification of the of the Meitnerium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. Meitnerium
is classified as a "Transition Metal" which are located in Groups 3 - 12 of the Periodic Table. Elements classified as Transition Metals are generally described as ductile, malleable, and able to conduct electricity and heat. Nearly 75% of all the elements in the Periodic Table are classified as metals which are detailed in the List of Metals.

Facts about the History and the Discovery of the Meitnerium Element
Meitnerium was synthesized by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Munzenberg at the Institute for Heavy Ion Research at Darmstadt, Germany in 1982
