Steel vs. Iron
Steel and iron; both are every day objects found in our households, our work environments, and all over the place. But what is the difference one might ask? Steel is actually a compound made up of different types of iron. Both have some of the same identities, such as strength and harndess. Iron however, is an actual element found in the natural environment. Steel on the other hand is made by different types of heat treatments. In the construction industry, one might use steel more often because of its longer lasting strength. Iron tends to rust easier than steel and because of the different elements in steel, it is stronger than iron is.
