solder / ˈ s oʊ l d ər /, / ˈ s ɒ l d ər / or in north america / ˈ s ɒ d ər / is a fusible metal alloy used to create a permanent bond between metal workpieces. the word solder comes from the middle english word soudur, via old french solduree and soulder, from the latin solidare, meaning 'to make solid'. in fact, solder must first be melted in order to adhere to and connect the .
seafloor massive sulfide deposits or sms deposits, are modern equivalents of ancient volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits or vms deposits. the term has been coined by mineral explorers to differentiate the modern deposit from the ancient. sms deposits were first recognized during the exploration of the deep oceans and the mid ocean ridge spreading centers in the early 1960s.
a zinc–carbon battery is a dry cell primary battery that delivers about 1.5 volts of direct current from the electrochemical reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide.a carbon rod collects the current from the manganese dioxide electrode, giving the name to the cell. a dry cell is usually made from zinc, which serves as the anode with a negative electrical polarity, while the inert carbon .

history. gold was discovered in the area in 1923. the name of the town is french for 'valley of gold.' while gold is still mined in the area today, base metals, such as copper cu , zinc zn , and lead pb have become increasingly important resources. the ore is usually found in volcanic rocks that were deposited on the sea floor over 2.7 billion years ago.
the ore is zn-rich at the top and cu-rich at the base. geometry typically tabular to lensoid, and range from less than 1 to more than 150 million tonnes. they often occur in clusters. economic minerals chalcopyrite cu , sphalerite zn , galena pb , silver and gold. the dominant gangue minerals are quartz, pyrite and pyrrhotite.
when the 500 yen coin debuted it was and still is the highest valued coin in the world depending on exchange rates. in comparison the coin's purchase power was about double that of a two-pound coin uk in 2012. these reasons have made 500 yen coins a prime choice for counterfeiters ever since they were first minted in 1982.
classical qualitative inorganic analysis is a method of analytical chemistry which seeks to find the elemental composition of inorganic compounds. it is mainly focused on detecting ions in an aqueous solution, therefore materials in other forms may need to be brought to this state before using standard methods.
the chalcophile elements include: ag, as, bi, cd, cu, ga, ge, hg, in, pb, s, sb, se, sn, te, tl and zn. chalcophile elements are those that remain on or close to the surface because they combine readily with sulfur and/or some other chalcogen other than oxygen, forming compounds which do not sink into the core.
this is important given the very high ea of gold, due to the potential stability of the filled 6s subshell look at how 'inert' mercury, with a filled 6s subshell, is , yet even so gold shows no great predilection for the –1 oxidation state. in other words i am querying the validity of the relatively high ea figure given for 171.
the gamma phase is a cubic-lattice intermetallic compound, cu 5 zn 8. white brass < 50 > 50: these are too brittle for general use. the term may also refer to certain types of nickel silver alloys as well as cu-zn-sn alloys with high proportions typically 40% of tin and/or zinc, as well as predominantly zinc casting alloys with copper .
brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical and electrical properties. it is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure.. it is similar to bronze, another alloy containing copper, with tin included instead of zinc; both bronze and brass may include small proportions of .
