Tungsten Steel

By: Tucker Gamble

Tungsten is a very interesting metal, It has a higher atomic number than iron, 74.

This is Tungsten in it's raw state. The element itself is on the periodic table with an abbreviation of "W."  It has this abbreviation because it comes from the Germanic name of "Wolframe," which means "the devourer of tin," because creating Tungsten requires smelting tin.  Tungsten steel also has a density  of 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter and it's atomic weight is 183.84.
