Transcript of Adopt-An-Element ~Nickel
Boiling point ~ 5,275°F (2,913°C)
Normal phase ~ Solid Nickel is used in many industrial and consumer products, including stainless steel, magnets, coinage, and special alloys. It is also used for plating and as a green tint in glass. Nickel is pre-eminently an alloy metal, and its chief use is in the nickel steels and nickel cast irons, of which there are innumberable varieties. It is also widely used for many other alloys, such as nickel brasses and bronzes, and alloys with copper, chromium, aluminum, lead, cobalt, silver, and gold. Many common household products contain nickel.
Nickel is commonly found in meteorites.
Nickel is required for animal and plant health.
Nickel can also negatively affect human health. Like I said earlier "Not Just for the Coin Jar!" The Nickel has so many achievements and accomplishments. It was found earlier in time and was brought down to the 21st century in some pretty interesting ways that is actually pretty amazing. So, congradulations Number 28 on the Periodic Table. Raven T. Hill

Science Nickel is of the Iron group and it takes on a high polish. It is a fairly good conductor of heat and electricity. Symbol ~ Ni
Atomic Number ~ 28
Atomic Mass ~ 58 (58.6934)
Number of Protons ~ 28
Number of Electrons ~ 28
Number of Nuetrons ~ 30
Normal State of Matter ~ Solid Alex van Cronstedt
1722-1765 Most nickel on Earth is inaccessible because it is locked away in the planet's iron-nickel molten core, which is 10 % nickel. The total amount of nickel dissolved in the sea has been calculated to be around 8 billion tons. Organic matter has a strong ability to absorb the metal which is why coal and oil contain considerable amounts. An uptake of too large quantities of nickel has the following consequences:
- Higher chances of development of lung cancer, nose cancer, larynx cancer and prostate cancer
- Sickness and dizziness after exposure to nickel gas
- Lung embolism
- Respiratory failure
- Birth defects
- Asthma and chronic bronchitis
- Allergic reactions such as skin rashes, mainly from jewelry
- Heart disorders
