How oxidation possible at first? It is in maximum oxidation state.
And yes how are we supposed to answer this in exam as this is a JEE Question! Jd lee reading?
I think they are talking about oxidation of impurities.
Besides Steel Making isn't in syllabus right?
Bro I don't know whether IIT sticks to syllabus or not? Is it % no question asked out of syllabus?
BTW.. @Ayan_Agrawal why would they mention steel making in syllabus, rather they assume this to be obvious part of d-block I think!
Idk but I think they won't ask from it since it's not given in NCERT as well
But don't you think it is obvious that we usually consider the main metal and not the impurities ? @Ayan_Agrawal
hnn whi to @Mayank_Chowdhary
Yup I said maybe impurities because oxidation of haematite ore doesn't make sense.
Never studied steel making so I have no idea what's going on.
