Chapter Name: Principle Of Metallurgy
Activity Name: Metal in Ore in Principle Of Metallurgy
In this activity, students will examine various ores and identify the metals present in each ore. The main objective is to familiarize students with different types of ores and the metals they contain.
- Samples of various ores (e.g., iron ore, copper ore, zinc ore, lead ore, etc.)
- Table for classification
Step by Step Procedure:
- Present the students with samples of different ores, such as iron ore, copper ore, zinc ore, lead ore, and any other relevant ores.
- Provide them with a table that has columns for the name of the ore and a space for identifying the metal present in each ore.
- Ask the students to carefully observe the physical properties of each ore sample, such as color, texture, and any distinct features.
- Based on their observations and prior knowledge, instruct the students to identify and write down the metal present in each ore sample in the respective column of the table.
- Students will identify the metals present in each ore and fill in the table accordingly.
- Handle the ore samples with care, as some ores may contain harmful substances.
- Ensure proper ventilation in the experimental area, especially if any dust or particles might be released from the ore samples during observation.
Lesson Learnt from Experiment:
Through this experiment, students will learn to recognize different types of ores and associate them with the metals they contain. It will enhance their understanding of the principle of metallurgy, the process of extracting metals from ores, and the importance of studying ores in the field of metallurgy.
