Umm, a gram of francium would kill everyone within a couple of blocks with radiation poisoning. :P That's femto- or attograms they sell it (as decay producst, as you might understand).

"they sell ethylene perchlorate there as well."

 

And what's that good for? I've never heard of it. :P

what would you store francium in because there its been stored in a glass vial but if its so radioactive surley you would store it in a lead container

well, imagine an organic perchlorate. think about it for awhile... it reduces SO easily it's rediculous. as a result it is an incredibly powerful oxidizing agent

*Sigh* How many times do I have to explain this? :P

 

It's like 0.1 attograms / gram of the substance within the ampoule.

Yes, since it's such a minimal quantity.

 

"well why on earth do they sell it if it would decay before it got to my house"

 

As I already said, it's a DECAY PRODUCT. :) So, at every given moment, 0.1 attograms of francium exists for each gram of the substance in the ampoule. So, if you had 10 grams of it, you would have 1 attogram of francium at every given moment.

If you lived in a house made of the stuff, perhaps then it would cause some harm then. :)

If you mean with the rain thing the reaction of francium with water, it doesn't really matter since even in a 100 ton amount of the stuff, there wouldn't even be a visible amount of it. :P
