Endpoint:
relative density
Type of information:
other: handbook
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Justification for type of information:
Handbook data are considered from a trusted source. Data have been taken from many sources, including both compilations and the primary literature - where conflicts were found, the value deemed most reliable was chosen. The reference was peer-reviewed. In addition, the reference sources are indicated although not leading to sufficient information on the material & method used.
Guideline:
other: not mentioned
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Method followed unknown; data from handbook.
GLP compliance:

Density:
2.5
Remarks on result:
other: Near room temperature. Anhydrous form.
Conclusions:
The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (80th ed.) mentions a density of 2.5 g/cm3 near room temperature for calcium nitrate (anhydrous). The relative density is 2.5.

Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
documentation insufficient for assessment
Remarks:
From International Chemical Safety Cards. There is no indication that the physico-chemical data has been ‘peer reviewed’. The reference source is not indicated leading to insufficient information on the material & method used.
