Mercury freezes at -38 F.
When frozen, Mercury manifests as a very brittle metal. This is due to Mercury’s bonding difficulty- it tends to bond with neither other elements nor itself.
I support the answer given by jet that mercury freezes at -38 F.
Because of mercury’s unique characteristics which make it stand out from other metals, it is used in a variety of household products (fluorescent lights, batteries, thermometers, thermostats, and even some athletic shoes, especially older kinds), and for industrial purposes as well (coal plants account for 40% of all mercury emissions nation-wide). Mercury is the only metal that is in a liquid state at room temperature, and that fluctuates evenly with temperature changes – the key reason it is so useful for measuring temperature!
