Question Time!
How Metallurgy is used today
Copper mines 4000 BC in the Balkans
3800 BC Sinai peninsula
Melting metals requires:
Bronze Age
Indus Valley 2500 BC
Shang Dynasty 1500 BC

Iron Age 1500 BC
Discovery of Steel
11th Century BC
Cast Iron 513 BC
Getting rid of impurities
Alloying
al·loy (noun)
1. a substance composed of two or more metals, or of a metal or metals with a nonmetal, intimately mixed, as by fusion or electrodeposition.
2. a less costly metal mixed with a more valuable one.
The Copper Alloys Tree
Iron alloy contains 2-4% carbon
used for construction
Molten state of metal
The First Iron Bridge - Abraham Darby (1709)
Industrial Revolution:
The Reverberatory Furnace
Advances in metallurgy made suspension bridges (like the Golden Gate Bridge) possible.
Construction of guns
cooking stuff
tools
cars
computers
IN CONCLUSION,
Metallurgy is important because it allows us to make and have stronger tools and other stuff that make life easier.
