Element Symbol: Ti
Element Name: Titanium
Atomic Number: 22
Protons= 22 Neutrons= 26 Electrons= 22
Atomic Mass: 47.867
Titanium is Both a Solid and Liquid
Discovered By: William Gregnor
Used For: Alloys with aluminum, molybdenum, manganese, iron, and other metals. These alloys of titanium are used principally in the aerospace industry, for both airframes and engines , where lightweight strength and ability to withstand extreme temperatures.
Physical Properties: Density of Solid- 4507, Molar Volume- 10.64, Thermal Conductivity- 21.9
Chemical Property: Melting Properties- 1,660 C, Boiling Point- 3287 C, Ionic Radius- 0.09 nm
Unusual Facts: Titanium was discovered by Mr. Gregnor, but it was not named until 1795. It was first isolated by Hunter in 1910, by heating TiCl4 with sodium in a steel bomb at temperatures from 700-800 C. Titanium is the most abundant metal in the earth's crust.
