Chemistry: Nickel Project

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