Difference between Metal and Alloy

Hi there,

I think you might find better and more accurate information if you do a search on the internet. On this forum we are more electrical, instrumentation and control orientated.

I will give you the information I have about it, but it might not be accurate and it is just the way I have it, so rather do a search on it and read what some mechanical expert have to say about it.

As far as I know a metal is a pure product like ion, sink, copper, gold ext and a alloy is a mixture of metals smelted together in order to create a type of metal not found in a natural state.
A metal is something you can find on a periodic table, iron, copper or tin, for example. An alloy is a mixture of two or more metals, brass or bronze for example.
