Specific Heat of Tantalum (Ta) + Sources, Uses, Origin ...

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

Note: Learn more about the specific heat here.

In the case of Tantalum the specific heat is 0.14 J/gK. Well... speaking of him, there are cool facts about Tantalum that most people don't know about. Let me show you...

Tantalum Data

Tantalum Specific Heat

0.14 J/gK

Sources

Chiefly occurs in the mineral tantalite. Always found with niobium.

Uses

Often used as an economical substitute for platinum. Tantalum pentoxide is used in capacitors and in camera lenses to increase refracting power. It and its alloys are corrosion and wear resistant so it is used to make surgical and dental tools.

Name Origin

From king Tantalus of Greek mythology, father of Niobe.

State at 20 °C

Solid

Description

Rare, gray, heavy, hard but ductile, metal with a high melting point.

Atomic Symbol

Ta

Atomic Mass

180,9479

Discovery

Discovered By: Anders Ekeberg
Year: 1802
Location: Sweden

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 Tantalum (Ta) + 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 Tantalum 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)
