Titanium was being classified as a transition metal. It have a colour of silver and dark gray. It appears to be shiny. Titanium burns in air and it’s the only element that burns in nitrogen. There are 13 known isotopes in titanium. Titanium that is natural includes 5 stable isotopes with a 46-50 atomic masses, also it is highly radio active upon bombardment with deuterons. Titanium is present most in igneous rocks and sediments derived from them. It is found in coal ash, plants, human body, sun, and meteorites. It occurs in rutile, ilmenite, sphene, and many iron ores and titanates.
