Tin density according to this page is 7.365 g/cm3. According to CRC handbook, it is 7.28. According to the RSC website, it is 7.287. Where is this page's density value coming from? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:27, 13 July 2016 (UTC)-Samuel
Hi Samuel, the densities of the elements used to populate data tables are given here. It appears someone has made a typo, instead of writing 7.265 g/cm3 they've used 7.365 g/gm3. I'll change the 1st decimal. Cheers Polyamorph (talk) 21:29, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
These terms should be clearly explained as referring respectively to bivalent- and tetravalent-tin compounds, from Latinstannum, 'tin'. I would just add it, but I'm not certain of the best spot, and there may be other such terms to account for. — SMcCandlish ☺☏¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ᴥⱷʌ≼ 00:19, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
