same goes for gallium
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Gallium actually needs to be a good deal above room temp in order to liquify.  On a typical day in the summer, my cesium is fully liquid but my gallium is still solid.  Only if it gets really hot does the gallium melt.  Just holding the vial of cesium will liquify it, but you need to hold onto the gallium vial for a good long while before it melts.
