Ytterbium Metal

Ytterbium Metal

Ytterbium is a soft, malleable, ductile, silvery element, also belonging to the lanthanide group. It reacts slowly in air or water but dissolves rapidly in mineral acids.

Symbol: Yb

Atomic number: 70

Atomic weight: 173.045

Element category: lanthanide

Application of ytterbium

Infrared lasers, chemical reducing agent, decoy flares, stainless steel, stress gauges, nuclear medicine, monitoring earthquakes. Ytterbium isotopes are being used as a radiation source for portable X-ray machines. Ytterbium compounds are also used as catalysts in chemical industry.
