Iron is the most abundant transition element in nature. Identify common chemical and physical properties of this element.

Interpretation Introduction


The physical and chemical properties of the iron have to be identified.

Concept introduction:

The groups 3 to 12 on the periodic table (d-block of the periodic table) are called Transition metal elements. The lanthanide and actinide series are also considered as inner transition metals.

  • Physical properties are those that can observe or measure.

    Physical properties of the elements are color, melting point, boiling point, mass, volume, density, length and shape.

  • Chemical properties are those that describe how a substance reacts or change into a new substance and based on the reactivity, for example the substance reacts with acid, base, air, water and other chemicals.

Chemical properties of iron is given below

The chemical formula of iron is Fe, which is nontoxic, iron dissolves in acids and it reacts with hot water and stream which produce hydrogen gas...
