Flashcards in Metals Deck (6)
Refined by reduction in blast furnace, molten iron in blast furnace called pig iron.
Three Ways of Making Steel
Basic Oxygen Furnace
Electric Arc Furnace
Mixture of two or more metals.
Melting point of alloys are LOWER than its components' melting points
Hardness increases in alloys
Size of crystalline particles determine physical properties of alloy (cooled slowly=larger crystals)
Brass: copper and zinc
Bronze: copper and tin
Steel: controlled amounts of carbon, manganese, sulfur, phosphorus, and silicon, alloyed with nickel and the chromium
Sterling silver: alloyed with copper
Form ionic or covalent bonds
