# What is the name of the element whose atomic number is 73?

Mar 7, 2017

Got a Periodic Table.........?

#### Explanation:

There should be one to hand if you are doing your chemistry, physics homework.

$\text{The atomic number, Z, of rhenium metal is 75}$.

The neutral metal thus of course also has 75 electrons. Why $\text{of course?}$

So we want the element whose $\text{atomic number} = 73$, which also has 73 electrons. This is another heavy metal, which you will find on the Table.
