Chromium is not ferrous as it does not contain iron, it is an element.

303 Stainless is a ferrous metal it is steel that contains nickel and chromium. It is not magnetic-but it is still ferrous!

Nichrome is a alloy of particularly Chromium and Nickel, but sometimes it may also contain iron (not as impurity). So depending on the content of Iron, this alloy can be called as Ferrous or Non ferrous.

If by SS you mean "stainless steel" then: Yes.Stainless steel is a ferrous alloy, most commonly the primary alloying metals are chromium (at least 10.5 % by weight) and nickel.High oxidation-resistance in air at ambient temperature are normally achieved with additions of a minimum of 13% (by weight) chromium, and up to 26% is used for harsh environments.[9] The chromium forms a passivation layer of chromium(III) oxide (Cr2O3) when exposed to oxygen. The layer is too thin to be visible, and the metal remains lustrous. The layer is impervious to water and air, protecting the metal beneath. Also, this layer quickly reforms when the surface is scratched. This phenomenon is called passivation and is seen in other metals, such as aluminum and titanium.

All iron or steel (even stainless steel) is ferrous. The word "ferrous" means "iron." All steel contains iron. All steels also contain impurities which improve various useful properties of iron, such as strength. There is high carbon steel, or steel with chromium or other elements that improve abrasion resistance or reduce rusting (stainless steel). There are some non magnetic steels, but because they contain iron they are still ferrous.

Lead is a non-ferrous metal.

Ferrous contains Iron, but non ferrous does not contain any iron

Non ferrous, because it does not contain iron.

Non ferrous (ferrous means containing Iron).

Ferrous. The word "ferrous" means "like iron".

is copper ferrous or non ferrous

Non-ferrous. The term ferrous implies that it contains iron.

Gold is non-ferrous, meaning it does not contain iron.

Bronze is non ferrous, as it does not contain any iron.

Ferrous means iron based and pure tin does not contain iron. So it is non-ferrous.

Copper is a non-ferrous metal because it is not made of iron.

Its Non-ferrous.Platinum is non ferrous, as it does not contain any iron

if solution is dark green then it is the carbonate of chromium +2 . if it is parrot green then carbonate of nickle +2 and if it is yellowish green then is carbonate of iron +2 or ferrous.

Aluminum is a non ferrous metal.

aluminium is a non ferrous metal

ferrous metals contain iron, non-ferrous metals do not.

Ferrous metals have iron, and non-ferrous metals don't.

Ferrous = Contains Iron Non-Ferrous = Does Not Contain Iron

Ferrous metal is metal that contains iron. Non-ferrous has no iron.
