Iron

Iron, which has the chemical symbol Fe, is an extremely useful metal and the most common element 0n the planet Earth. Here are some of the more common uses of iron in the world today. Uses of Iron * Iron catalysts are used in the Haber-Bosch Process to produce ammonia and the Fischer-Tropsch Process to convert carbon monoxide to hydrocarbons used for fuels and lubricants. * Iron metal is strong but is also quite cheap. Therefore, it is the most common metal in use today. Most automobiles...

Corrison of iron

restricted to iron or products made from it .Iron is easily prone to rusting making its surface rough. Chemically, rust is a hydrated ferric oxide Titanic‘s bow exhibiting microbial corrosion damage in the form of ‘rusticles’ Rusting an Electrochemical Mechanism ; Rusting may be explained by an electrochemical mechanism. In the presence of moist air containing dissolved oxygen or carbon dioxide, the commercial iron behave as if composed of small electrical cells. At anode of cell, iron passes into...

Heat and Iron

A clothing iron, also called a flatiron or simply an iron, is a small appliance: a handheld piece of equipment with a flat, roughly triangular surface that, when heated, is used to press clothes to remove creases. It is named for the metal of which the device is commonly made, and the use of it is generally called ironing. Ironing works by loosening the ties between the long chains of molecules that exist in polymer fiber materials. With the heat and the weight of the ironing plate, the fibers are...

Information on Iron and Hydrogen

IRON (METAL) Iron is a chemical element with the symbol Fe (from Latin: ferrum) and atomic number 26. It is a metal in the first transition series. It is the most common element (by mass) forming the planet Earth as a whole, forming much of Earth's outer and inner core. It is the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust. Iron's very common presence in rocky planets like Earth is due to its abundant production as a result of fusion in high-mass stars, Like other group 8 elements, iron...

Rusting of Iron Project Report

a type of corrosion but the term is restricted to iron or products made from it. Iron is easily prone to rusting making its surface rough. Chemically, rust is a hydrated ferric oxide. Rusting, an electrochemical mechanism: Rusting may be explained by an electrochemical mechanism. In the presence of moist air containing dissolved oxygen or carbon dioxide, the commercial iron behaves as if composed of small electrical cells. At anode of cell, iron passes into solution as ferrous ions. The electron...
