Iron, Steel and other Alloys

Iron is produced in a blast furnace

Key components in the furnace are coke (like charcole), limestone and iron oxide (from iron ore)

Goes through reduction process

Not pure when it comes out (96% pure)

Makes it brittle (breaks easily)

Strong and doesnt get compressed

Pure iron is quite soft

Add carbon to iron and you get an alloy - Steel
