Im doing an assignment for science and i need to know the nuclear charge of Aluminium?and also is there a difference between Aluminium and Aluminum or can it just be spelt differently?
ALUMINIUM ALUMINUM ARE ONE SAME ELEMENT . the nuclear charge means number of protons . the number of protons electrons are ALWAYS equal = 13 e- = p
Aluminium is the European spelling Aluminum is the American spelling...just like colour and color. Aluminium ion usually has a 3+ charge
Aluminum by itself has no charge it is neutral. The number of electrons matches the number of protons. The electrons on aluminum move with ease, that is why it is used as a wire. If one of the electrons is lost it becomes a positive ion with a charge of +1. If the Aluminum has one more electron than protons then it is said to be a negative ion with a charge of -1. Gravity is the summation of all the attractive and repulsive forces in the location being considered. Gravity is when the attractive forces are stronger. Neutral gravity is when the attractive and repulsive forces match exactly. (very rare) Anti-Gravity is when the repulsive forces are stronger. Anti-gravity is quite common and is one of the primary causes for star formation in galaxies. Stars are actually secondary to the process. The Primary process is a quasar of mostly protons emerging like a bubble from a galactic core after splitting off from its neutrons deep in the galactic core. When the Quasar emerges the pressure is so greatly decreased that it explodes into about 50,000 stars. Proton proton repulsion in large objects, moons, planets, stars, quasars and galaxies are the prime example of anti-gravity in action
Well aluminium can be spelt as aluminium or aluminum (American and European as Robert said). Aluminium ions can have many different levels of atomic charges but is mainly found as +1, +2 and +3. Having a +3 atomic charge is the most common form of aluminium ions. A single atom of the element aluminium (if not interfered with) has 13 protons and 13 electrons meaning it has an atomic charge of 0. Hope this helps.
