Day 25~ Y is for Ytterbium

In science class, each of us our assigned an element to research and do a project on. Mary got Iodine, while I got Ytterbium (Yb)(It-ter-bee-um). 'What is Ytterbium?' you might ask. Well thats why I am here! Ytterbium is a bright, soft, silvery-white, extremely rare metal. It is not found naturally. Any ways it was founded in 1878 in Geneva, Switzerland by a man named 

Jean Charles Galissard. Ytterbium 

is a solid and very malleable and ductile

It has 70 electrons,70 protons and 104 

neutrons and the atomic weight is 

173.4. It was named after a small village in

Sweden called Ytterby.
