Tungsten was formerly known by the Germanic name Wolfram, after the tungsten mineral wolframite, hence its chemical symbol W. The name tungsten was derived from the Swedish words tung and sten, meaning heavy stone, because of its high density. Discovery of the element is credited to Spanish brothers Fausto Jermin and nobleman Juan Jose de Elhuyar in the early

    heavy metal tungsten (W) is used in many applications worldwide due to its high melting point and strength when alloyed with other metals. Tungsten and its alloys were generally considered inert and therefore posed little threat to the environment and biological systems (Koutsospyros et al., 2006). Consequently, in the late 1990s, the US military replaced lead (Pb) and depleted uranium (DU) in kinetic energy penetrators and small ammunitions with tungsten and its alloys. The tungsten containing

    Open Ended Investigation: Part A Why do we need to monitor ions used in society, what evidence proves that we need to? What are Heavy Metal Ions and why do we need to monitor them? The term Heavy metal is used to describe any metallic chemical element that has a high density and is toxic/poisonous at low concentrations. Some examples of heavy metals are Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, Chromium, Thallium and Lead (Pb). Analytical and Environmental chemists need to monitor Heavy Metal Ions as they

    The metals analyzed were Cadmium, Copper and Lead. All the selected metals were present in water, sediments and fish samples from all the study sites. The heavy metal concentration in water does not exceed WHO guidelines. This finding was in agreement with (Ozturk., Ozozen., Minareshi., & Minareshi, 2009). Cadmium concentration from Florema, Sher Karuturi, Flamingo and Malewa River exceed the WHO limits for sediments. Discussion already existing.

    Tool steels are utilized on a wide variety of application including forming, shearing, cutting and molding (manufacturing the tools, dies, and molds) where (due to their remarkable properties) high wear resistance, hardness, strength, toughness, heat resistance and other properties are preferred for optimum performance. In addition to alloying, tools steels are considered special because they are very difficult to manufacture and require careful manufacturing in every processing step. The very high
