What is an Atomic Number/What is Berylliums Atomic Number :

  • An atomic number is the number of protons that are in the atoms nucleus.

  • It determines where the element place is on the periodic table and what chemical properties it has.

  • Berylliums is fourth on the periodic table because it atomic number is four.



What is Atomic Mass/ What is Berylliums Average Atomic Mass:

  • Atomic Mass is the amount of neutrons and protons added together in an atom 
    • For example: Protons+Neutrons= Atomic Number 
  • Berylliums average atomic mass is 9.012182

I got an atomic number of 4 
And I am quite a bore 
I’m not very fast 
But I sure can scratch glass 

I am from the Greek 
And once referred to as sweet 
I am very light-weight 
So please, don’t use me as a paper weight 

I am gray and strong 
And can go pretty long 
Without getting heated 
Melted or eaten 

I’ve been in outer space 
And I couldn’t wait to get back from that place 
I can go quite a while without getting oxidized 
So if you got time, stop by and say “hi”
