				   why mercury is liquid at room temperature????

6 years ago


Answers : (2)


Dear shashank,

mercury has completely filled d10 electronic configuration. hence the extent of metallic bond formation is less as the orbitals are completely filled. due to weak interatomic forces of attraction, Hg exists as a liquid at room temperature.
