  is mercury a free element

well...it depends. you can find it some places but this is really rare. most of the tme you have to buy a thermometre and break it to get the mercury. hope this helps. =]

mercury is a metalic, silver liquid which when spilt breaks up into tiny beads. no one knows who discoved it but it was found in tubes in ancient Egyptian tombs and is said to have been known about since before 1500 BC. it used to be believed that when it was solid that it would turn into gold.

  Mercury was discovered in egyptain tombs and the discoverer is unknown. It's color is silver, looking like liquid medal. It is named after the planet mercury. From the latin word, hygtagytum meaning liquid medal. Used in thermometers, barometers, flouresent lamps, batteries, advertising signs, lightbulbs, red paint, and is used to form pesticides. If you have had a cavity filled, the filling has mercury in it. its the only common medal liwuid at ordinary temperatures. Its a heavy silver-white medal. A poor conductor of heat and a fair conductor of electricity. It easily forms alloys with many medals, such as Gold, Silver, and Tin. It acts as a cummulative poison, and dangerous levels in the air. It's not widly found in rivers and streams. usually found in spain and italy. Mercury is posionus ans can enter the body through the respitory tract, the digestive tract, or directly though the skin. It accumulates the body, eventually causing serious illness or death.

I hoped this helped someone. I am doing an Oral Report on mercury and am trying to find all the information as possible. Thats all I could find, if you could find anything really interesting that could impress my teacher, so that i could give my grade a boost.

it is known to the chinese and the hindus maybe that will help you bye

mercury is a white silver liquid metal at ordinary room temperature. mercury is a toxic metal if you heat it up it will turn into toxic gas which can kill human and any living things. it is a very dangerous metal.

  Where is mercury found? What is it used for?

It's used in batteries, light switches, and thermometers. It can be found in Cinnabar ores in Italy and Spain.

  what does mercury look like

Mercury looks like a silver rock. It is used in thermometers ((the silver thing that moves up and down, depending on the temperatures)) It is also used in batteries, flouresent lights and barometers. Mercury is in the air, and is widly found in rivers and streams.
