Physical properties of magnesium
The melting point is 651°C;
The boiling point is 1107°C;
The thermal conductivity is 0.376 cal / (cm · s · deg)
The specific heat at the melting point is 0.3 cal / deg;
Specific heat capacity increases to T melting and decreases upon its attainment;
Shrinkage at change of states (liquid - solid) - 3,97-4,2%;
The resistivity at room temperature is 0.047 ohm-mm2/m.
This element of the periodic table of Mendeleyev is attributed to alkaline earth metals.
