Magnesium Atom

3D model of Magnesium

It is stated constantly that the various atoms making up the elements " are the building blocks of life", together forming almost all matter. Magnesium (Mg) is the ninth most common element on the periodic table and the eleventh most common element in the human body, by mass. In total, it is fairly abundant in the universe. It is an alkaline earth metal with an atomic number of 12 and atomic mass of 24.305. The structure of magnesium was modeled and constructed on VRmath, a 3D modeling software. This blog will cover the structure, composition and characteristics of magnesium, as constructed on VRmath, as well as any additional interesting facts.
