Which is an alloy iron steel nickel or gold?
steel is an alloy
Yes, it is stainless *steel*, after all, primarily iron with other metals/materials mixed in. ------------------------ Stainless steel is an alloy. This means it's made up of a mixture of substances. Stainless steel is made up of the elements iron (70%), chromium (20%) and nickel (10%). So to summarise, the alloy stainless steel is made up of the metals iron, chromium & nickel.
Steel is an alloy of iron. an alloy is a mixture of a metal with one or few other elements in it. there are many types of steel; high carbon steel (approx. 2.1% carbon, the rest iron), low carbon steel (approx. 1% carbon, the rest iron), and stainless steel (73% iron, 18% chromium, 8% nickel and 1% carbon) and etc.
Yes! All steel is an alloy since there is no base atom "steel". An example of a non alloy would be gold, silver, aluminum, etc. If the metal is not on the periodic chart of the elements, it is an alloy. Stainless steel is in fact defined as a steel alloy--steel itself being mostly iron (an element) with added carbon--alloyed with at least ten percent chromium by mass.
