Transcript of The Oxygen Family

The Oxygen Family
Same number of valence electrons; 6.
All like to react with Alkaline Earth metals
Repel Alkali Metals
Are non reactant with Halogens.
Common chemical properties
They are different kinds of elements. For example: Oxygen is a gaseous nonmetal; Sulfur and Selenium are solid nonmetals; Tellurium is a solid metalloid; Polonium is a solid metal; and Livermorium is a solid metal.
2, Polonium and Livermorium are radioactive.
Livermorium is newly discovered and has no uses, unlike the others in the family.
Wide range of different physical properties.
Focus: Oxygen
Location on Periodic Table
What the elements look like, Livermorium is N/A
The Elements
Intro Video

Oxygen: Colorless, odorless, tasteless, gas.

Sulfur: Normally a pale yellow, odorless, tasteless, brittle solid.

Selenium: Gray or a red powder, solid, metalloid.

Tellurium: silvery-white, solid, brittle, shiny or glossy surface.

Polonium: Solid, silvery-white, metal

Livermorium: N/A, newly discovered

Oxygen: Melting point- 54.36k, Boiling point 90.188k, highly reactive (because there are 6 valence electrons)

Sulfur: Melting point 388.36k, Boiling point 717.8k, it will burn with certain elements, and sulfur dioxide is strong and gives off a choking odor. Less reactive than oxygen but has a greater reaction than sulfur

Selenium: fairly reactive, When put in oxygen it burns, Melting point 494k, boiling point 958k

Tellurium: does not dissolve in water only in acid, melting point 722.66k, boiling point 1261k, fairly reactive.

Polonium: Radioactive, fairly reactive, melting point 527k, boiling point 1235k.

Livermorium: Highly Radioactive, Other info is
N/A, newly discovered

Oxygen: What every organism needs to survive; H2O and O2.
Sulfur: Gunpowder, matches, fireworks.
Selenium: Solar cells, photo cells, and is used to decolorize glass
Tellurium: Blasting Caps
Polonium: Is used in anti-static brushes to dust off photographic film
Livermorium: N/A, newly discovered, currently has no uses outside of research.

Similarities & Differences within the family
Group number 16. It is the third to last group. The first element in the family is Oxygen then Sulfur, Selenium, Tellurium, Polonium, and Livermorium. There are six valence electrons. This family is reactive because all they need is two more valence electrons to make it complete
