Tin is a chemical element with the symbol Sn.Tin has many uses. It takes a high polish and is used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion, such as in tin cans, which are made of tin-coated steel. Alloys of tin are important, such as soft solder, pewter, bronze and phosphor bronze. A niobium-tin alloy is used for superconducting magnets.

Held long enough, gallium will melt in the hand as it liquefies at temperature of 29.77 °C (85.59 °F) (slightly above room temperature). Its melting point is used as a temperature reference point. The alloy Galinstan (68.5% Ga, 21.5% In, 10% Sn) has an even lower melting point of −19 °C (−2 °F). From its discovery in 1875 until the semiconductor era, gallium was used primarily as an agent to make low-melting alloys.

Gallium is represented by the symbol "Ga". Solid Gallium is soft, pliable and a metal that easily melts within a few seconds of holding it in your hands. Read on to know more about this amazing metal.

Chemistry in everyday life Have you ever wondered why chemistry is so important? Why do we study chemistry?  We all are made of chemicals and everything around us is made of chemicals. Everything we hear, see, smell, taste, and touch involves chemistry and chemicals (matter). Hearing, seeing, tasting, and touching all involve intricate series of chemical reactions and interactions in our body
