How do you extract iron from cereal?
Get a cereal with a high iron content. Look at the nutrition label. It should be around 100%. Place crushed cereal in a zipper lock bag. Add a small amount of water. Enough to make it the same consistency as a creamy soup. Seal the bag closed. Get a strong magnet, rub it over the bag slowly. You will see the iron build up around the tip of the magnet.
First you want to put the cereal with some water in a blender (you can also use milk) and blend it for a while. After that let it sit in the blender for 5mins. Then pour it in a plastic or a glass cup (no metal cups) and slosh a strong magnet through it. You cannot use a refrigerator magnet for this it will not work. You must use a strong magnet to extract the…
Materials A piece of paper Mortar & pestle Magnetic stirrer A magnet Some tap water Plastic bag Procedure: 1) Obtain as close to exactly one serving cereal as possible (by mass). Write down its mass. 2) Crush the cereal to a fine powder in the mortar and pestle, you may have to do it a little at a time. The more finely ground the cereal is, the easier it will be to get the iron…
Well, It depends on the cereal. If you're eating cereal that is known to be healthier than others, than it might have a good amount of iron in it. Each serving of the Fruity Pebbles cereal is 10% iron, while the Honey Nut Cheerios cereal gives 25%. So it all depends. Healthier cereals are more likely to have more iron. pameladiscount.com Jewelry store Please visit and tell your friends.
It is possible yes, because the iron in the cereal 'batter' is raw elemental iron (in trace proportions) rather than a non-magnetic compound. However you'd have to blend the cereal into dust first to liberate the traces of iron. There is not nearly enough iron on one flake for the flake themselves to be attracted to a magnet.
It's possible to do so (if you mean extract iron from iron pyrite) , but because pyrite is exothermic, it creates a hazard in mines. Also, it is much more economical to extract iron from other minerals. Pyrite is also geologically unstable, and will eventually turn into sulfurous minerals and actually viable iron ores, so it is best left for future mines. Pyrite is really only worth it for making sulfuric acid or jewelry.
Nobody "invented" iron, it's an element, and people have known about it for thousands of years. Until recently, people could easily get enough iron from their food, and did not need suplements very often. By contrast, we now must add iron to our food (for example, cereal) in order to get enough iron for our blood to oxygenate.
