Mercury (atomic number 80, symbol Hg) is a chemical element known as hydrargyrum and quicksilver. It is a silvery, heavy d-block element with a boiling point of 356.73 C and a freezing point of -38.83 C. This element is the only metal in a liquid state at standard conditions for pressure and temperature apart from bromine. Other metals melt above room temperature, including rubidium, francium, caesium, and gallium.
