What is an alloy?
An alloy is a mixture of different elements.
5 of 10
How is the arrangement of atoms different in alloys than in pure metals?
The atom arrangement in alloys consists of different size atoms meaning, unlike pure metals, they are not able to slide over eachother. Making alloys much stronger.
