Aluminum (or aluminium) is a soft, lightweight, silvery metal. It is an element in the boron group on the periodic table of elements, with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. On the earth's crust, aluminum is the most abundant metal, and the third most abundant of all elements on the earth's crust, after oxygen and silicon. It accounts for 8% of the weight of the Earth's solid surface. Because aluminum is a highly reactive metal, it doesn't occur in nature in a pure form. Aluminum forms a...
