1 LANTHANUM 57 La Lanthanum By: Emily Shelton

2 Properties & Uses of Lanthanum PROPERTIES   Melting point F   Boiling point F   Density per cubic centimeter   Classification- metal  Appearance- a silvery-white metal that is able to be cut with a knife; tarnishes in the open air  Where it is found- in rare earth minerals like cerite, monazite, allanite, and bastinite USES USES  Carbon Arc Lights which are used in the motion picture industry  Studio Lighting  Projector Lights  Camera Lenses  Special types of glasses lenses
