Source: Found naturally in rocks and minerals. Forms alloys such as vanadium carbide and ferrovanadium that are added to steel to create strong materials used in tools and many industrial manufacturing processes.
Summary: Vanadium is element 23 on the periodic table. Vanadium is a metal that has a density of 6.110 g/mL. Vanadium is used in alloys such as vanadium carbide or ferrovanadium which are combined with steel to create tools and industrial parts that have high strength. These alloys are also favored because they are heavily resistant to corrosion. Vanadium may be found naturally in rocks and minerals.
