  • Ferromagnetic is the ability to become highly magnetic and have the ability to retain a permanent magnetic moment.Because Nickel is in the iron group, it is a fairly good conductor of heat and electricity.Kupfernickel meaning false copper from the deceptive copper of the ore.
  • He was a Swedish Mineralogist
  • But most nickel compounds are blue and green.
  • Organic matter in Earth absorbs about 10% of the metal Nickel.
  • Smokers have a higher nickel uptake through their lungsair, drinking water, eating food or smoking cigarettes
  • Silverware, Stainless Steel, guns….it is in the air, plants, sea, mineralsNickel is also found in the air that we breathe

    • 1. Nickel-Ni
      By: Heather Robert
    • 2.
    • 3. What is Nickel?
      Nickel is a ferromagnetic metallic element that is used in alloys.
      Nickel is also in the iron group.
      It originates from the Greek word kupfernickel.
    • 4. Alex Fredrick Cronsted1722-1765
      He was a mining expert with the Bureau of Mines and in 1751 he discovered Nickel in a mineral called Niccolite.
    • 5. Atomic Mass and Atomic Number
      Atomic number
      Atomic mass
    • 6. Melting and Boiling Points
      Melting point
      Boiling point
      1453 °C
      2913 °C
    • 7. The Features
      Nickel has a silvery-white look.
      It is a hard malleable substance, and it is a ductile metal.
    • 8. What to know…
      The major usage of Nickel is in the process of preparation of alloys.
      About 65% of Nickel that is consumed by the Western World is used for the process of making stainless steel.
    • 9. Nickel in the Environment
      The total amount of Nickel that has been dissolved in the sea is to be about 8 billion ton’s.
      Because the organic matter in earth is strong, it has the ability to absorb the metal.
    • 10. Health Effects
      With too much Nickel…
      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
    • 11. What else has Nickel?
      Foods naturally contain small amounts of Nickel
      Nickel can be found in detergents
      Silverware also contains nickel.
    • 12. What I learned
      I learned that Nickel is used in a lot of things in the world today.
      What I found really interesting was that Nickel is in the air.
