Tin s discoverer is unknown but one thing is known. Tin has been used and

discovered by the ancients. Tin was an accidental discovery.

Tin has been around for many years. Proof is in the fact that tin is

mentioned in the old testament of the bible.

Tin had a great effect on the world because of its low price, high electric

conductivity, and because tin protects against rust and weak acids in food if the

can is made out of tin instead of aluminum.

Some common compounds of tin are organtin a combination of carbon and

tin. When tin is formed with carbon to make organtin it can make more than 500

organtin compounds. These compounds are used in everyday things. One is toothpaste

containers and also are things such as wood, paper, textile, farm sprays, and

Hospital disinfectants.

To get pure tin you must first find ore cassiterite or tin stone, a dioxide of

tin. The ore cassiterite before smelting and roasting must be crushed into a powder

to remove the arsenic and sulfur from the ore cassiterite. When you smelter the

tin you must heat it with carbon to remove the zinc, copper, bismuth, and iron

from the tin.

Tin had been used for many things but tins use is dropping rapidly although

tin is still used a lot for plating. Plating such things as electical contacts.

Tin is also used as a protective coating. This protective coating can be as

small as 15/1,000,000 of an inch. This protective coating protects against rust on

steel and other metals. A coating of tin also gives a great look to plain old


Tin cans for food prevents weak acids from damaging the inside of

the can. Not many cans are made of tin since aluminum started to be used

for cans tins use dropped sharply.

Tin is also used to coat staples, pins, bronze bell, pewter pitchers and many

others things.

Another popular tin mixture is tin and lead. Tin and lead make solder for

electric work. Battery contacts in the Black and Decker snake lights are also tin


A compound tin salt is used to spray onto glass windows to produce

electrically conductive coating for panel lighting and frost free windshields

for cars.

One last use for tin is in the making of glass windows that are made by

floating molten glass on molten tin. This produces a flat piece of glass to be used

as a windows.

Industries basically only use tin for plating for electricity or for protection

on there metals such as tin.

Tin is found in Molaya, Bolivia, Indonesia, Zaire, Thailand, Nigeria, but

almost no tin is found in America, although some tin has been found in Alaska

and California.

Tins basic information. Tin has an atomic number fifty on the periodical

table of the elements. Tin s atomic symbol is Sn. Tin s atomic weight is 119 amu

(118.69 amu). Tin s electronic configuration is 2-8-18-18-4. Tin is in Group 14.

Tin has a gray color unless heated then it turns white. Tin is also a malleable and

ductile element. Tin is a very soft metal. Tin melts at 450 degrees F. Tins density

is 7.2984 centimeters squared. Tin has 69 neutrons and 70 protons.
