5 Physical Properties  Iron is ductile and malleable.  It is a silvery-white or grayish metal.  Iron’s boiling point is 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s melting point is 2,797 degrees Fahrenheit.  Iron is three of the naturally occurring magnetic elements. The other two elements are nickel and cobalt.

6 Chemical Properties  Iron is a very active metal.  It combines with oxygen in moist air. This product of reaction is iron oxide also known as rust.  Iron reacts with very hot water and steam to produce hydrogen gas.  Iron also dissolves in most acids and reacts with many other elements.

7 Uses of Iron It is also used to carry oxygen in through your blood (also known as hemoglobin).  Iron is an element that makes up steel.  Iron is used a lot, here are some of the many examples: automotive, construction, containers, packing, shipping, machines, rail transportation, oil and gas industries, electrical equipment, appliances, and utensils.

8 History of Iron  Iron was first discovered thousands of years ago.  The discovery of iron led to tools and weapons that were harder and more durable than those known during the previous Bronze Age.  Today more than 90 percent of all metal refined in the world is iron.

9 Isotopes  There are naturally four occurring isotopes of iron, iron-54, iron-56, iron-57, iron-58.  Iron also consists of six radioactive isotopes.  Two of the radioactive isotopes are iron-55 and iron-59, they are used to study the way in which red blood cells are developed in the body.

10 Other Interesting Facts  Iron is the cheapest and the most abundant of all metals.  It has a very high tensile strength.  The symbol of iron is Fe and comes from the Latin word Ferrum.  Also iron is a transition metal. Which means it is part of group 3-12 on the Periodic Table.
