• suggests
  • Many compounds with a stoichiometry that suggests the presence of a metatellurate ion actually contain polymeric anions containing 6-coordinate tellurium(VI), for example sodium tellurate, Na2TeO4 which contains octahedral tellurium centers sharing edges. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Knowing the blood levels of sodium, potassium and other electrolytes through laboratory testing gives doctors a window into the body's health and can help diagnose a number of pathologies based on the relative ratios of electrolytes. (livestrong.com)
  • According to the "Encyclopedia of Surgery," the normal blood sodium level is 135 to 145 mEq per liter. (livestrong.com)
  • The normal blood potassium level is 3.5 to 5.0 mEq per liter. (livestrong.com)
  • The heart is one of the organs most immediately affected by the levels of sodium and potassium in the blood. (livestrong.com)
  • However, generally speaking, higher blood levels of potassium can cause a slowed heart rate and irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia, while lower levels produce a rapid heartbeat. (livestrong.com)
  • Citric acid/potassium-sodium citrate is a drug used in the treatment of metabolic acidosis (a disorder in which the blood is too acidic). (wikipedia.org)
  • Water
  • The eutectic mixture consists of 77% potassium and 23% sodium, is liquid from −12.6 to 785 °C (9.3 to 1,445.0 °F), and has a density of 866 kg/m3 at 21 °C (70 °F) and 855 kg/m3 at 100 °C (212 °F), making it less dense than water. (wikipedia.org)
  • lead
  • Use of lead or pure sodium, the other materials used in practical reactors, would require continual heating to maintain the coolant as a liquid. (wikipedia.org)
  • size
  • The coolant self-forms into frozen droplets of solid sodium-potassium of up to around several centimeters in size and these solid objects then become a significant source of space debris themselves. (wikipedia.org)
