8. Titanium is a metal and in the family of transition metals. It belongs to group 4 of the periodic table.

9. Titanium is a silver, lustre, low in density but is a strong metal. This metal forms a passive but protective oxide coating when exposed to elevated temperatures in air but at room temperatures it resists tarnishing. The most noted chemical property of Titanium is its excellent resistant to corrosion.

Ti in standard atomic notation.

10. Titanium is almost always present in igneous rocks and in the sediments derived from them. It is found in certain/some areas in the world. Some major places Titanium can be found in are Australia, Canada, India, Norway, South Africa, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan in Russia. Over 95% of the United States titanium comes from most of these countries.

12 &13. The element Titanium was first discovered in 1791 by William Gregor, an English clergyman and mineralogist, reported that he had discovered magnetic black sand near the beaches of Cornwall, England.

11. Titanium is used for many industrial needs because of its light weight and how hard the element is. This element titanium is used in aerospace applications, automobiles, prosthetics, buildings, and sporting equipment.

14. In a simple form, we get Titanium by chemistry method from titanium ores.
