Electrical and Magnetic Properties of Potassium

The magnetic properties of Potassium state the information about its magnetic ordering and orientation. It concludes whether the metal is paramagnetic, diamagnetic or ferromagnetic. Electrical properties define the response of the metal to the flow of electric current. Electrical properties of Potassium include factors like electrical resistivity, conductivity, electron affinity, electrical nature (type), etc. Conductivity is a measure metal's ability to the flow of electric current. Electrical and magnetic properties of Potassium get influenced by the Atomic Structure of Potassium.

Potassium Magnetic Properties

Potassium magnetic properties comprise of specific gravity and magnetic ordering of this metal. The specific gravity of Potassium is 0.86. Toxicity of a metal is determined by the value the specific gravity. Generally, the metal with higher values of the specific gravity have a tendency to get accumulated in the human body resulting in toxic side-effects.

Magnetic ordering of Potassium defines its magnetic orientation & magnetic nature, which gives an insight into the magnetic properties of Potassium. Potassium is Paramagnetic metal. Paramagnetic metals are slightly attracted by magnet, but they can’t retain the magnetic effect once they are removed from the magnetic field. The orientation of the electron spin in a metal's atom, the orientation of the atoms in a molecule, and the extent to which domains of atoms can line up are the factors that determine the response of a metal to a magnetic field.

Electrical Properties of Potassium

Choice of any metal for an electrical application is influenced by its electrical characteristics. On the other side, these electrical and magnetic properties of Potassium are directly related to magnetic and electrical orientations. The electrical property of Potassium metal is Conductor. Conductor metals have very low resistance to electric currents. They can easily conduct electric current through them. The resistivity of Potassium defines its ability to resist the flow of electric current and its value is 72.00 nΩ·m.

Conductivity of Potassium (K)

Generally, metals have good conducting properties. The electric current is a result of the valence electrons present in the conduction band of atoms of a metal. The electrical conductivity of Potassium (K) is 0.14 106/cm Ω. Its electrical conductivity explicates its ability to conduct electric current. The value for electron affinity of Potassium Element is 48.40 kJ/mol. While comparing the electrical properties of Potassium with others, electric conductivity & resistivity are the major deciding factors.
