It mostly used to make alloys including aluminium-silicon and ferro-silicon (iron-silicon). These are also used to make dynamo and transformer plates, engine blocks, cylinder heads, machine tools, to deoxidise steel, and to make silicone( silicon-oxygen polymers with methyl groups attached), which you can make silicone rubber and oil. It can also be used extensively as a semiconductor in solid-state devices in the computer and microelectronics industries, which is made with hyperpure silicon. The silicon is selectively doped with tiny amounts of boron, gallium, phosphorus or arsenic to control its electrical properties. It can sometimes be used in, a) granite and most other rocks, which are complex silicates, and are used for civil engineering projects, b) concrete and cement, which are made with sand (silicon dioxide or silica) and clay (aluminium silicate), and c), in pottery, enamels, and high-temperature ceramics, which have silicate in them. Lastly, silicon carbides are important abrasives and are also used in lasers. Silicon benefits Arizona by making is more technology and helping people’s…show more content…

Chapter 12: Reflection My favorite part of doing this project was learning a lot about my state, Arizona. A few things I learned were that Arizona is one of the largest states and that Pluto was discovered there. I would like to thank my mom, dad, and my chromebook for helping me on this project. Some advice I would like to give future students who will also do this report is to finish early so you might have a chance of getting chromebook freetime or other
