Neutron Multiple Number as a Factor Ruling Both the Abundance and Some Material Properties of Elements

  •  Yoshiharu Mae    


The abundance of elements in the universe was plotted on the TC-YM diagram. The most abundant elements show the unique pattern drawing a quadrant. Next, the neutron multiple number, the number of neutron per proton in the nucleus, was introduced. The neutron multiple numbers of elements show the same pattern as the abundance of elements on the diagram. As a result, the abundance of elements shows a good correlation with neutron multiple numbers of elements. With increasing neutron multiple number, the abundance decreases. Besides, the neutron multiple number relates to the materials properties such as the Young’s modulus, thermal conductivity and melting temperature of elements.
