Metals

1.They burn with various colored flames.2. The name "alkaline earths" comes from an old name for the oxides of the elements.3. The elements are called alkaline because the pH for this solution has pH higher than 7, making them bases for "alkaline".4. Radium is formed from the decay of Uranium.5. Calcium and Magnesium are important for plant and animal life. Calcium helps us build stronger bones and magnesium helps regulate body temperature.6. Radium was discovered by Marie and Pierre Curie.7. Calcium is the most abundant alkaline earth metal in the world.8. Radium is used in cancer treatment because it conducts radioactive waves.9. Beryllium is used in nuclear applications.10. All of them except beryllium react strongly with water.
