The Blast Furnace
In at the top goes limestone, iron ore, coke
limestone=calcium carbonate
iron ore=iron oxide

500 degrees

Then 500 degrees is near the top of the furnace. At 500 degrees Carbon Monoxide takes oxygen from the ore to leave iron.

word equation
iron oxide+ carbon monoxide -> iron+ carbon dioxide

symbol equation
Fe2O3+ 3CO -> 2Fe+3Co2

1000 degrees

This is in the middle of…
