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...

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...

Iron Pillar

The Iron Pillar located in Delhi, India, is a 7 m (23 ft) column in the Qutub complex, notable for the rust-resistant composition of the metals used in its construction. The pillar has attracted the attention of archaeologists andmetallurgists and has been called "a testament to the skill of ancient Indian blacksmiths" because of its high resistance tocorrosion.[1] The corrosion resistance results from an even layer of crystalline iron hydrogen phosphate forming on the highphosphorus content iron...

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...

Spectrophotometric Methods: the Determination of Iron

Spectrophotometric Methods: The Determination of Iron The goal of this laboratory experiment was the quantitative spectrophotometric determination of Fe (II) by using a calibration plot, which obeyed the Beer-Lambert Law. In order to determine the Fe (II) concentration, a series of solutions of known concentrations were made. The solutions were analyzed by the Ocean Optics spectrophotometer in order to determine their absorbance. The concentration of the unknown Fe (II) was determined by the “eye-ball”...

The reaction of Iron with Copper(II) Sulfate

STOICHIOMETRY The reaction of Iron with Copper(II) Sulfate Purpose: In this experiment we will use stoichiometric principles to deduce the appropriate equation for the reaction between metallic iron and a solution of copper (II) sulfate. This reaction produces metallic copper, which is seen precipitating as a finely divided red power. Materials: Flask beaker Copper solution Balance Hot plate •150 ml beaker •1 gram of iron power •30 ml of CuSO₄ ...
