Metallurgy is the process of extraction of metal from their ores.
And when concentrated or roasteded ore is heated with iron is known as smelting.

Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to change the oxidation state of the metal ore; the reducing agent is commonly a source of carbon such as coke, or in earlier times charcoal

I cannot explain this answer so please give the accurate and easy example and explain it.

Metallurgy is the process of extracting metal from their ores... the metals ores heated or fused with some reducing agent this is called smelting....

The pure metal is obtained by ore like Al is obtained by bauxite metallurgy has many step.

Use the coak and silica impurities to remove the metals like As, Antimony, Bi.

Metallurgy is the process in which metal is extracted from its ore by heating/reducing

Please tell me how can change antimony sulphate (sb2so4) into antimony sulphite (sb2so3).
How Sulfite sulphate or any change to?

Metallurgy is the process whereby ore are reduce by heating them with co2 or coke to obtain a pure metal. The heating of this ore is called smelting.

What is difference between orbit and shell?
(Sun, Nov 3, 2013 11:03:43 AM)
calcinations is the process take place in the presence of oxygen.
Roasting is the process take place in the absence of oxygen.

According to my knowledge I think orbit is the path that electron move whereas shell is the place where electrons are present.

Smelting means concentrated ore is obtained in its melted state.

Metallurgy is process of extracting metal from their ores for that purpose ignition that is heat required after heating metal fuses that process is called smelting. In short it just a fused metal form due to heating.

Smelting is to fuse or melt (ore) in order to separate the metal contained.

Smelting is a form of extractive metallurgy; its main use is to produce a metal from its ore. This includes production of silver, iron, copper and other base metals from their ores. Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore, driving off other elements as gasses or slag and leaving just the metal behind. The reducing agent is commonly a source of carbon such as coke, or in earlier times charcoal. The carbon (or carbon monoxide derived from it) removes oxygen from the ore, leaving behind elemental metal. The carbon is thus oxidized in two stages, producing first carbon monoxide and then carbon dioxide. As most ores are impure, it is often necessary to use flux, such as limestone, to remove the accompanying rock gangue as slag.
Plants for the electrolytic reduction of aluminium are also generally referred to as smelters. These do not melt aluminium oxide but instead dissolve it in aluminium fluoride. They normally use carbon electrodes, but novel smelter designs use electrodes that are not consumed in the process. The end product is molten aluminium.

What is calcination?
(Wed, Nov 12, 2014 01:49:49 PM)
If the ore is not oxide and found as carbonate or sulphide then it is subjected to calcination.
Calcination is process of heating carbonate ores in absence of oxygen.
Eg: CaCO3 gives on calcination CaO +CO2.

What is fused state?

I will like being this online chemistry. But I don't understand the meaning of calcination, those two definition are confusing.
(Sun, Aug 23, 2015 11:48:27 AM)
Fused state means molten state and calcination means heating of carbonate ore like caco3 in absence of air.

Does smelting have any bacterial means?
(Sun, Apr 10, 2016 11:39:26 AM)
Metallurgy is a process of extraction metal from ore. The metal is obtained fusion state in smelting because during the process of smelting the metal is mixed with slag & a flux. The melting is over high so the metal is obtained fusion state.
