Is Steel A Pure Substance

Scott, there are 3 types of materials: elements, compounds, and mixtures. Compounds are covalently bonded elements. Compounds and elements are both considered 'pure' substances. Mixtures are not bonded in any fashion. So a steel mixture can have varying amounts of iron, carbon, silica,molybdenum, etc., giving the steel the desired properties (strength, rigidity, rust resistance, etc.).
