Alloy

Dear Readers: Today we will discuss about the alloy.  In our day to day life alloy has got immense importance.  The ratio of composition is very important while studying the alloy. Alloy can be considered as a solid solution. Eg. Brass (Zinc and Copper)   Duralumin - Al:Cu:Mg:Mn = 95:4:0.5:0.5 Used for making bodies of aircraft and pressure cooker   Magnalium – Al:Mg = 90:10 Used for making bodies of aircraft   Stainless steel – Fe:Cr:Ni:C = 73:18:8:1 Used for making utensils and cutlery   Manganese steel – Fe:C:Mn = 85:1:14 Used for making Armour plates and Rock drill machine   Nickel steel – Fe:Ni = 95:5 Used for making Automobile parts and Electric wire cable   Invar – Fe:Ni:C = 63:36:1 Used for making scientific instruments and metre scale   Brass – Cu:Zn = 70:30 Used for making decorative utensils, screws, cartridge, and parts of watch   Bronze – Cu:Sn:Zn = 80:18:2 Used for making medals, statues, utensils   German silver – Cu:Zn:Ni = 50:30:Ni Used for making electric heater, rheostat and decorative articles   Solder or Fuse metal - Pb:Sn...
