Problem: The metal gallium has a relatively low melting point for a metal, 302.91 K.If the temperature in the cargo compartment carrying a shipment of gallium has a temperature of 88 oF, is the gallium in the solid or liquid state?

FREE Expert Solution
  • To determine the state of gallium, we have to convert 88°F to K where if it exists lower than 302.91 K, it will be solid but if its higher than 302.91 K, it will be liquid
