  Mercury \Mer"cu*ry\, n. [L. Mercurius; akin to merx wares.]
     1. (Rom. Myth.) A Latin god of commerce and gain; -- treated
        by the poets as identical with the Greek Hermes, messenger
        of the gods, conductor of souls to the lower world, and
        god of eloquence.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. (Chem.) A metallic element mostly obtained by reduction
        from cinnabar, one of its ores. It is a heavy, opaque,
        glistening liquid (commonly called {quicksilver}), and is
        used in barometers, thermometers, etc. Specific gravity
        13.6. Symbol Hg (Hydrargyrum). Atomic weight 199.8.
        Mercury has a molecule which consists of only one atom. It
        was named by the alchemists after the god Mercury, and
        designated by his symbol, [mercury].
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Mercury forms alloys, called amalgams, with many
           metals, and is thus used in applying tin foil to the
           backs of mirrors, and in extracting gold and silver
           from their ores. It is poisonous, and is used in
           medicine in the free state as in blue pill, and in its
           compounds as calomel, corrosive sublimate, etc. It is
           the only metal which is liquid at ordinary
           temperatures, and it solidifies at about -39[deg]
           Centigrade to a soft, malleable, ductile metal.
