ICN News – Nickel Characteristics, Nickel is a metallic chemical element in periodic table which has a symbol of NI and atomic number 28. Nickel has corrosion corrosion resistant characteristic. In pure condition, nickel is soft but when it is combined with iron, chrome and other metals, it can form stainless steel which is hard, malleable, slightly ferromagnetic, and it is rather good conductor of heat and electricity. Nickel belongs to the iron-cobalt metal group, which can produce extremely valuable alloys.

 Physical Characteristic
Nickel is a metal element with a solid phase and it has a density of about 8.908 g / cm3 and a liquid density when passing through its boiling point of 7.81 g / cm3. The melting point of Nickel is 1455oC while the boiling point is 2913oC. The Nickel Melting Heat is 14.48 kJ / mol, while the Nickel Evaporation Heat is 377.5 kJ / mol, and the heat capacity at room temperature is 26.07 J / (molK).
