Potassium Mechanical Properties

Potassium mechanical properties are one of the important properties of this metal. Physical Properties of Potassium are very closely related to its mechanical properties. Mechanical properties of Potassium comprise of its density, tensile strength, viscosity, vapor pressure and much more! The mechanical properties determine the strength of the metal and its ability to withstand the extended stress. There are few other mechanical properties of Potassium like malleability, ductility, viscosity, etc. which are its important characteristics while comparing it with other metals.

Density of Potassium

Density of Potassium is an important parameter among its mechanical properties. Potassium density is nothis but exact value of its mass(weight) per unit volume. Depending on the density, metals are classified as Heavy Metals. Its density at room temperature (near room temperature) is 0.86 g/cm3. And if you talk about its density at liquid state, it is 0.83 g/cm3. Viscosity of Potassium cannot be determined, as the concept of viscosity is only applicable to fluid (liquid state) substances.

Tensile Strength of Potassium

Tensile strength of Potassium is Not Available. Its tensile strength reflects the effect of applied force to wrench the metal while it reaches the point where it breaks down into pieces. Its tensile strength is a deciding factor while comparing mechanical properties of Potassium with other metals. The extent of application of any metal is determined by its tensile strength.

Other Mechanical Properties of Potassium (K)

Other mechanical properties of Potassium (K) like elasticity modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus, young's modulus and Poisson ratio are explained in this section. The elasticity modulus of Potassium with respect to Shear modulus, Bulk modulus and Young's modulus is 1.30 GPa, 3.10 GPa and 3.53 GPa. Data about the Poisson ratio of Potassium Element is currently unavailable. All these values indicate the effect of the various stresses on the deformation amount of metal. The properties such as ductility and malleability are directly dependent on the value of young's modulus and shear modulus. This metal is NA in nature.
