Nitrogen is classified as an element in the 'Non-Metals' section which can be located in groups 14,15 and 16 of the Periodic Table. Non-metallic elements exist, at room temperature, in two of the three states of matter: gases (Oxygen, Hydrogen & Nitrogen) and solids (Carbon, Phosphorus, Sulfur and Selenium).
In this manner, can nitrogen be a solid?
It turns solid. And then it snows. The boiling liquid nitrogen is also evaporating which cools itself which turns the liquid nitrogen so cold that it turns into a solid. Solid nitrogen colder than -346 degrees Fahrenheit.
What is the state of nitrogen?
|Classification:||Nitrogen is a gas and a nonmetal|
|Melting point:||-210.1 oC, 63.05 K|
Is nitrogen gas at room temperature?
Uses: Nitrogen - N2 - at room temp and atmospheric pressure, nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, nontoxic, nonflammable gas. It constitutes 78% by volume of the atmosphere. Used as an inert gas in electrical systems, chemical and food packaging industry.
