Physical Properties of Barium






Barium is a silver-white metal, not so soft as lead, and of density 3.78. It melts at about 850° C., is volatile at 950° C., and boils at 1150° C. in vacuo. Its specific heat between - 185° and + 20° C. is 0.068. The maximum photoelectric effect is produced in the red and orange part of the spectrum. The ionic mobility of ½Ba is 55.

The following are the most intense lines in the spectrum measured in Angstrom units: -
