Cast-iron is either pure iron or some alloy of it melted until it's liquefied, then cast in a mold. It's relatively brittle, but because of its low melting point and easy casting, it's widely used for pipes, machines, and parts of cars, as they can be easily produced with these molds.

What is the diffence between physical and chemical properties as well an physical and chemical changes?

Physical properties can be observed without changing the chemical composition of a substance. Chemical properties can only be observed by changing the chemical composition of the substance. In a physical change, the chemical composition of the substance does not change. In a chemical change, the chemical composition of the substance changes.

Is a chemical composition and chemical properties the same thing?

No. Chemical composition is "What is this substance made of". Chemical Properties are "How does this substance react when I do XYZ to it". Examples of Composition are Cl_2, HBr, CH_4, C_2H_6 Examples of Properties are Boiling Point, Melting Point, Electronegativity, Reactivity, Valence Electrons.
