Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Calcium (Ca) & Facts, Color, Uses ...

Size of things changes depending on the coefficient of thermal expansion. It's even the case for Calcium. Ok, so what is the coefficient of thermal expansion for an atom of Ca?

Note: Learn more about the coefficient of thermal expansion here.

In the case of Calcium this thermal coefficient is 22.3 10^-6 K^-1. By the way, did you know there are cool facts about Calcium that most don't know? Check this...

Calcium Data

Calcium Coefficient of Thermal Expansion

22.3 10^-6 K^-1

Atomic Number

20

Learn more about the atomic number.

Uses

Used by many forms of life to make shells and bones. Virtually no use for the pure metal, however two of its compounds are, lime (CaO) and gypsum (CaSO4), are in great demand by a number of industries.

Atomic Mass

40,078

Learn more about the atomic mass.

Sources

Obtained from minerals like chalk, limestone & marble. Pure metal is produced by replacing the calcium in lime (calcium carbonate, CaCO3) with aluminium in hot, low pressure retorts.

Description

Fairly hard, silvery-white metal. Fifth most abundant element in the earth's crust (41,500 ppm). Occurs only in compounds.

Atomic Symbol

Ca

Discovery

Discovered By: Sir Humphrey Davy
Year: 1808
Location: England

State at 20 °C

Solid

Name Origin

Latin: calx, calcis (lime).

Citation

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Calcium (Ca) & Facts, Color, Uses ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
