    reaction is represented in a chemical equation: C(s) + O2(g) ® CO2(g) + heat The carbon dioxide generated rises halfway up the furnace, where it reacts with the hotter coke. This causes the carbon dioxide to reduce into carbon monoxide. This reaction absorbs some heat and lowers the temperature of the upper part of the furnace to roughly 1300° C. CO2(g) + C(s) + heat ® 2CO(g) This carbon monoxide then reduces the iron oxide to a metallic iron, which is molten at the temperature of
