Every single element in the nature has some or the other properties attached to its existence. For example, we as humans itself have lot of properties that define and identify us. For example, we have color, caste, creed, gender, height, eye color and so many other things which come into the picture when we are being identified as humans or when we are being recognized. In the same way, the chemical compounds also have particular properties which define and distinguish them from some other chemical compounds.
There are also cases where the chemical compounds are classified into certain categories or groups for the easy analysis and study of the compounds. For instance, when you take up organic compounds, all the organic compounds which are having the double bond O (oxygen) are categorized under the ketones and they all have similar properties when they are reacting with other elements in the nature.
- What are physical and chemical properties:
Generally, for the convenience of the people, the compounds are categorized into two types. One is the physical properties which deal with the outer appearance, the structure of the compounds, the melting point of the compound, the boiling point of the compound as so on. The second category is that chemical properties which deal with the reactivity of the compounds with other elements in the nature. It deals with how the compound is responding to the atmospheric gases, whether it is getting oxidized or reduced when it is coming in contact with other elements and so on. Similar to many other compounds even calcium titanate has both physical as well as chemical properties.
- The physical and chemical properties of calcium titanate:
This particular compound is an inorganic compound and does not have any kind of carbon bonds associated with it as clearly seen in the chemical formula ( CaTiO3 ).The melting point of the compound is around 1975 degrees Celsius ( 3587 degrees Fahrenheit ) and the boiling point of the compound is around 3000 degrees Celsius ( 5430 degrees Fahrenheit ). The molecular weight of the compound ranges from 135.943 gm depending on the accuracy with which the experiments are conducted. The density of the compound is around 4.1 grams/ cm3. This particular compound is not soluble in water and is made totally of crystals when it comes to chemical appearance. The compound lacks the hydrogen bonding in it and therefore does not show any signs of stickiness or sticky properties in it.
The compound is canonicalized and does not contain any kind of formal charges associated with it. The heavy atom count of the compound 5 and the compound is believed to posses around 5 covalent bonds as well.
