Did you know that it is a chemical element with the chemical symbol W and atomic number 74.
Tungsten has the highest melting point of these refractory metals at 3422°C.
It is very robust and has an extremely high tensile strength; it has the ability to be drawn into very thin wires.
Tungsten’s corrosion resistance is also very good.
Applications include; lighting elements, X-ray targets, heating elements, missile components, and due to its high density is used as counter weights.
