this is going to sound like an odd question, but which element has its boiling point and its freezing point closest together? by which i mean, which transitions through the phases the fastest?

Perhaps a more complex question than yopu realize. For example; water has a state known as "http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/blynds/3pt.html [Broken]", in which all three phases are present in the same environment and at the same temperature.

Same pressure and temperature.

And what about those short lived radioactive elements? We will never know about those either,or at least for a good while.

How about rephrasing the question to "At atmospheric pressure...What element has the closest phase change?"
