Science Question About Steel?

Molten steel changes to solid steel at its __________ point. Could you please fill in the blank? Thank you so much, it is greatly appreciated. I have been looking for the answer to this question for a long time, but I never understand what the websites are trying to say because I don't have that big of a vocabulary and don't know what they mean. I've seen things saying steel boiling point, steel melting point, and steel freezing point. I don't know what any of those mean, and they might be the answer. Please help me. Thank you.

Answer:

just like a melting point of ice and the boiling point of water, there are different points where something is converted into another form. such as icewatersteam. it's always the same thing and it's a physical change, but just in a different form. molten steel changes to solid steel at it's freezing point. or solid point. i'm not sure how you would word that. but it would not be melting or boiling point. hope that helped.

Carbon 'tempers' steel, by making it harder and less prone to bending (ductility). It fits the carbon atoms into the spaces in between the crystal lattice structure of the iron atoms. Too much carbon means the steel becomes more brittle, harder to weld and thus more likely to shatter under stresses which are perpendicular (shear forces) to the crystal structure of the molecules. It also is very difficult to work, requiring very high temperatures.

Kera...time to crank up the brain in gear....molten refers to what state of matter? Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma? Ding-Ding-Ding....liquid. Solid to liquid is the melting point.
