Gold is a metal- as a substance, it is a metallic lattice. As a result, most metals are solids at room temperature, with the exception of mercury, due to their high melting point which arises from these strong metallic bonds.
In this way, is gold a solid?
Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au (from Latin: aurum) and atomic number 79, making it one of the higher atomic number elements that occur naturally. Chemically, gold is a transition metal and a group 11 element. It is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under standard conditions.
Can a metal be a gas at room temperature?
There are no metals as of now that are known to have gaseous phase at room temperatures. All metals are solid in room temperature except for mercury, which is liquid. Also, gallium melts when put in one's palm.
