Specific Heat of Cobalt (Co) + Sources, Uses, Origin ...

Specific heat is an important physical property for materials and atomic elements like Cobalt. Ok, so what is the specific heat of an atom of Co?

Note: Learn more about the specific heat here.

In the case of Cobalt the specific heat is 0.42 J/gK. Well... speaking of him, there are cool facts about Cobalt that most people don't know about. Let me show you...

Cobalt Data

Cobalt Specific Heat

0.42 J/gK

Sources

Occurs in compounds with arsenic, oxygen and sulfur as in cobaltine (CoAsS) and linneite (Co3S4). Pure cobalt is obtained as a byproduct of refining nickel, copper and iron.

Uses

Used in many hard alloys; for magnets, ceramics and special glasses. Remains hard up to 982°C. Radioactive cobalt-60 is used in cancer therapy.

Name Origin

German: kobold (goblin).

State at 20 °C

Solid

Description

Hard, ductile, lustrous bluish-gray metal. Exists in the earth's curst in cocentrations of about 25 ppm. It has remarkable magnetic properties.

Atomic Symbol

Co

Atomic Mass

58,9332

Video

Are you having trouble understanding the basics of atomic elements? This video will walk you through:
  • What is an element
  • What is a substance
  • What Elements look like
  • How a small number of atoms can be joined and form completely different substances

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. "Specific Heat of Cobalt (Co) + Sources, Uses, Origin ..." 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.

Colored Periodic Table

Need an editable periodic table to edit? Maybe add your school logo, work team or anything else to make your paper look cool?

Along with basic atom / element information (like Cobalt specific heat and all the other atomic data), it also comes with color coded info about: State (Gas, Liquid or Solid at room temperature), Groups/series details and much more...

How about an incentive to share this post? (You will help other colleagues find this blog)

Download and enjoy this complete and colored periodic table for you to edit and enjoy. It's in an editable excel format or .ods (open).
