The Element Darmstadtium


"The Atom"

Definition of the Darmstadtium Element
Darmstadtium (formerly known as Ununnilium) is a chemical element in the periodic table that has an atomic weight of 281 making it one of the super-heavy atoms. It is a synthetic element and decays in thousandths of a second. As Darmstadtium is so unstable, any amount formed would decompose to other elements so quickly that there’s no reason to study its effects on human health. Due to its presence in Group 10 it is believed to likely be metallic and solid. The Atomic Number of this element is 110 and the Element Symbol is Ds.
