What are two elements that are commonly bonded to metals in ores?
Most metals in ores are oxides because of their contact with the air. So, practically, one element is Oxygen and the other is the metal element itself. One example of such is Iron Oxide. It has to be broken down to its key elements by getting rid of the Oxygen atoms within to make it a purer Iron.
Some rocks contain pure metals like gold silver and copper. These are elements on the periodic table and are called 'native' ores. Other metals like iron,magnesium and zinc are found as metallic oxides in their ores and have to be refined to make the metal. The ores are pounded to dust and reduced by removing the oxygen molecule in the oxide to convert them back to the metallic state. This is done in a furnace.
Metal is not made of rock. It is made of metal atoms bonded together in what is called a sea of electrons. Metal ores are rocks that contain metal atoms bonded with other elements, such as oxygen, and as such the metal compound in the ore does not have the properties of metals, such as luster, malleability, and conductivity, until the ore is processed and the metal is separated out. _______________________________________________________________________________________ Conversely, rock is made…
Lead is found underground as an ore, meaning it is chemically bonded to other elements. The most common lead ore is Galena, which is Lead Sulphide. Other lead ores include Carbonate, Sulphate, Chromate, Phosphate, and Chloride. Lead is also found with other metals. One very famous lead mining area is Galena Illinois.
it depends. A lot of metals are elements like iron for example, these can be mixed to form alloys(compounds) steel for example is an aloy of carbon and iron. Metals exist as mixtures when they are found in their ores(mixed with other metals and minerals) and must be separated from their mixtures by smelting.
Many of the metals that humans use come from ores. For example the iron used to make steel comes from the the mineral hematite, lead for batteries is produced from galena, and the magnesium used in vitamins comes from dolomite. Ores of these useful metals must be extracted from Earth in a process called mining.
Cobalt is a naturally occurring element. ----- Not really. It is extracted from ores like other metals. It does not appear in nature as a pure metal, but in a compound, often found with Copper containing ores. Artificially created elements usually refer to elements that have been created by fusing smaller atoms together to create heavier atoms - examples include Californium, Curium and Plutonium.
Metals do not exist in crystals. Metals generally are found as compounds, and not as elements themselves. They are found as compounds in ores, which contain a rich amount of a certain metal. Even if you are talking about a piece of metal, it is still not considered a crystal. Thus, your question cannot be answered.
Many metals come in the form of ores, which are either a compound, or nuggets of pure metal embedded in rock. Iron Ore is real, and commonly known as haematite, Iron Oxide in rock. Gold Ore is real, the gold is usually pure as it reacts only under extreme circumstances, but it can sometimes be alloyed with other metals such as silver. Diamond Ore and Emerald Ore aren't technically accurate name, pure diamonds and emeralds…
"No, gold, silver, and platinum are some of the metals which are not ores". Yes, these metals do occur as nuggets of native element, and are dredged, or panned from stream, and river sediments, but there are many sulfides, and oxides of these, and other metals as well. These oxides, and sulfides are the Ore Minerals sought after by prospectors, and mined from in sittu Hard Rock Deposits.
