Not illustrated. 1920 Excerpt: ...No two elements agree exactly in their tendency to go into solution, and, as they spread over quite a range of electrical solution potential, just as their atomic weights are spread at intervals over a considerable range, we can arrange them in an electrochemical series. Elements which fail thus to enter solution bearing a positive charge lack all metallic attributes. Divisions of the Science. The systematic study of the science of metallurgy includes the following common divisions: General Metallurgy. This division treats of the assembled relations, properties, and processes, as derived from the detailed study of the metallurgy of iron and steel and of the nonferrous metallurgy. Electrometallurgy, and Hydrometallurgy. These divisions treat of certain more limited fields from the electrical and wet-chemical viewpoints, respectively. Individual metals, processes, or appliances, when important enough, are commonly treated as separate subjects; such are: the metallurgy of steel, foundry practice, and electric furnaces. Metallography. This is a strong young science which treats of the structure of the metals; it especially studies all the internal physical and chemical properties of the metallic state; it investigates metallic compounds, liquid and solid metallic solutions, solidifications, transitions, and crystal form. The art of metallurgy consists in extracting the metals from their ores and in purifying and preparing them for consumption in the manufacturing industries and trades. Of course quite a bit of ore preparation often is included in metallurgy; likewise much manufacturing may be tagged on to strictly metallurgical operations, as when a steel plant sends its product out in the shape of railroad spikes. Extent of Metallurgical Study. Metallurgy cann...
