Calcium is the chemical element wi seembol Ca an atomic nummer 20. Calcium is a saft gray alkaline yird metal, an is the fift-maist-abundant element bi mass in the Yird's crust. Calcium is the fift-maist-abundant dissolved ion in seawatter bi baith molarity an mass, efter sodium, chloride, magnesium, an sulphate.[2]

Calcium is essential for livin organisms, in parteecular in cell pheesiology, whaur muivement o the calcium ion Ca2+ intae an oot o the cytoplasm functions as a signal for mony cellular processes. As a major material uised in mineralisation o bane, teeth an shells, calcium is the maist abundant metal bi mass in mony ainimals.
