Can 118 elements in the periodic table be collected as long as you have money? indulge in the wildest fantasy

The universe is a material world, whether planets, stars or other celestial bodies are made up of all kinds of materials, and the vacuum we think is not really empty, there are also a small amount of all kinds of materials.

After entering the era of science and technology, human beings began to explore and study the material world. In the process of research, we did not find any elements, and formed a table, which is very familiar with the periodic table of elements.

As we all know, there are 118 elements in the periodic table, and the difficulty of obtaining each element is different. Once someone wanted to collect all the elements, but in the end they found that they couldn’t. Some people may think that although money is not everything, but for these elements, as long as money can be collected, is this really the case?

If you think so, it’s a big mistake. If you ask who is the richest in the world, many people will think of Bill Gates as the richest man in the world. Bill Gates is an entrepreneur who loves science very much. He often collects some scientific and technological products, and even spends a lot of money to buy some ancient scientific and technological manuscripts at some auctions.

Bill Gates loves science so much and has a hobby of collecting scientific materials, so he is also very interested in these elements in the periodic table. He has a collection cabinet, which shows 118 elements collection tanks. Even such rich entrepreneurs have not collected all 118 elements. It can be seen how difficult it is to collect all these elements. It is no longer something that money can easily solve.

Why are these 118 elements so difficult to collect and impossible to do with money? To solve this mystery, we need to have a simple understanding of these 118 elements. Some friends may think that these 118 kinds of elements are products of nature, but in fact, only 94 kinds of elements have been found in nature, and the other 24 kinds are realized by artificial synthesis.

If there are elements in nature, it’s not difficult to obtain them. For example, it’s not difficult to collect hydrogen and oxygen, and we ordinary people can do it easily. Even if some natural elements are more expensive, it is not difficult to collect them as long as you are willing to spend money. For example, gold, platinum and other precious metals are common precious metals in our daily life. The price of gold is about 400 yuan per gram.

Platinum is one of the rare elements in the earth’s crust, and its price is more expensive. If we only collect one gram of these precious metal elements, I believe most of our friends can do it. These are just ordinary precious metal elements, the price is not very expensive, and the price of 91 element praseodymium is as high as 2000 yuan per gram, which is more than five times that of gold.

The price of americium 95 is 5000 yuan per gram, which is equivalent to a good smartphone. And 86 element radon, the price per gram as high as 10000 yuan, this price can buy a good apple mobile phone. The price of 94 element plutonium is as high as 30000 yuan per gram. If your monthly income is 3000 yuan, you can buy one gram of plutonium in that year.

As long as you can bear the above elements, but the following elements are not affordable for ordinary people. For example, the price of one gram of radium 88 is 200000 yuan, which ordinary people can no longer afford. Many friends know that it was discovered by Madame Curie and belongs to a radioactive element.

97 element is more expensive, the price per gram is as high as 1 million yuan, this price can buy a suite in the fourth tier small cities. If you think that this is the most expensive element in the periodic table of elements, it’s a big mistake. It can only be considered as medium. On top of it, there are more expensive elements that are beyond our imagination, such as the 98 artificial element californium, which is mainly used as a strong neutron source with extremely high radioactivity. The cost per gram is as high as $27 million.

Of course, this is not the most expensive element. In nature, there is an element with a higher price, francium 87, which decays very fast and has a very short half-life. Its isotope francium-223 is the most stable, but its half-life is less than half an hour. Therefore, francium is very difficult to produce. Its output is very low and its manufacturing cost is very high. The cost per gram is as high as one billion US dollars.

So is francium the most expensive element? Of course not. In fact, the most expensive element known at present is hydrogen, not ordinary hydrogen, but antihydrogen. It is estimated that the cost of producing one gram of antihydrogen is nearly 63 trillion US dollars. It’s beyond our imagination to see if this number is beyond our imagination.

Of course, the above elements can be collected as long as you have enough money, even if the price is too high for the powerful United States. But the following two elements are hard to get even if you have enough money. The first element is polonium, which is a highly toxic element and can glow in the dark.

How toxic is polonium? It is said that one gram of polonium can poison people all over the world. No matter how rich you are, you can’t get such a terrible element. No one dares to let this element be controlled by one person. It’s really terrible.

The other element is og, element 118, which is the last element found so far. This is a kind of artificial rare gas element, which is the heaviest element synthesized by human beings at present. The atom of this element is very unstable. It can only exist for one tenth of a second, and then it will decay. Element 116 will continue to decay into element 114. Such elements exist for a short time. No matter how rich you are, you can’t collect them.

Through the above understanding, I believe many friends have understood how difficult these 118 elements are to collect. Of course, this is in view of the current situation of human science and technology. With the continuous progress of human science and technology, those elements that are difficult to synthesize or very unstable may become easier in the future. It is also possible for you to collect these elements at that time.

Of course, 118 kinds of elements are not all the elements in the universe. Although only 94 kinds of natural elements have been found, the universe is so vast that we don’t even know 1% of them. In the unknown universe, there may be other more mysterious and complex natural elements. With the continuous progress of science and technology, we may be able to synthesize heavier elements through science and technology in the future. At that time, the periodic table of elements will not only be 118, but will continue to increase.
