Its negative pendant shows the same form in silicon, germanium and tin; again, the fourth was unexamined.
Some of you will go to the germanium mines, some to the fishing fleet, some will be apprenticed to various trades.
germanium 64 is not at all stable, and neither is Neodymium 128, but the instability can be corrected by positive beta emission.
In 1875 Lecoq de Boisbandram discovered gallium, which filled one of the gaps; scandium and germanium filled the other two later.
Tin and lead, together with silicon and germanium, form a family in Group IV of the periodic table.
On the one side is carbon, with below it titanium and zirconium; on the other silicon, with germanium and tin.
It was a true answer, for all statements made by England culminated in the one sentence germanium esse delendam.
Silicon has been discussed along with the non-metals, while germanium, on account of its rarity, needs only to be mentioned.
germanium: an ovary: that portion of an ovarian tube containing the cell elements.
Other elements are named from countries or localities, as germanium and scandium.
