Copper - Wikipedia
Copper is one of the few metals that can occur in nature in a directly usable metallic form (native metals).This led to very early human use in several regions, from c. 8000 BC. Thousands of years later, it was the first metal to be smelted from sulfide ores, c. 5000 BC; the first metal to be cast into a shape in a mold, c. 4000 BC; and the first metal to be purposefully alloyed with another

Engine Oil Analysis - Bob is the Oil Guy
18/5/2011· Engine oil analysis is a process that involves a sample of engine oil, whether or used, and analyzing it for various properties and materials in order to monitor wear metals and contamination. By analyzing a sample of used engine oil, you can determine the wear rate, and overall service condition of an engine, along with spotting potential problems and imminent failure before it happens.

Alkaline Earth Metals - Study Material for IIT JEE | askIITians
The group 2 of the periodic table consists of six metallic elements. They are Beryllium (Be), Magnesium (Mg), Calcium (Ca), Strontium (Sr), Barium (Ba) and Radium (Ra). The name alkaline earth metals was given to magnesium, calcium, barium & strontium since their oxides were alkaline in nature and these oxide remained unaffected by heat or fire and existed in earth.
Understanding the Carbon Steel Grade System | EPS Ovens
Sulfur in steel increases machinability, but all free machining agents, such as sulfur, lead, calcium, etc., are in essence dirt, or elements taken directly from the earth. Such free machining elements improve the machinability but do not homogenize in the steel making process and can cause pockets, stringers or other faults that can affect some appliions.
NPK Fertilizer: What is it and How Does it Work?
NPK fertilizer is a complex fertilizer comprised primarily of the three primary nutrients required for healthy plant growth. The agriculture industry relies heavily on the use of NPK fertilizer to meet global food supply and ensure healthy crops. According to the IFDC, about half of the global population is alive as a result of the increased food production provided by the use of mineral
