FACTS-Iron is a lustrous, ductile, malleable, silver-gray metal-Iron is a strong metal that is not that expensive. It is fairly cheap that’ why it is commonly used in manufacturing machine tools, - The reason iron is used in many ways is because it has properties that can be changed according to the need of mankind by mixing it with other substances – either metallic or nonmetallic.

IRON (fe)(from the Latin word ferrum, meaning iron.)

Fe(II) and Fe(III) Like many elements, iron (chemical symbol Fe) can exist in more than one chemical form, or "oxidation state." The two most common forms for iron are Fe(II), in which the iron ion shares two of its electrons, and Fe(III), in which it shares three electrons.
