Answer 1:

The first answer goes to the next interesting site which mentions all the chemical characteristics of Calcium.

calcium-element

Calciums use in terrestrial applications is usually limited by its high reactivity with air.However, Calcium uses are mentioned below:


as a reducing agent in the extraction of other metals, such as uranium, zirconium, and thorium.
as a deoxidizer, desulfurizer, or decarbonizer for various ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
as an alloying agent used in the production of aluminium, beryllium, copper, lead, and magnesium alloys.
in the making of cements and mortars to be used in construction.
in the making of cheese, where calcium ions influence the activity of rennin in bringing about the coagulation of milk.
