Differentiate between wrought iron and steel

Wrought iron is an iron alloy containing a little amount of carbon

It is produced by heating and working with tools

It is formed during charcoal firing and also a byproduct of cast iron production

It can deform when high pressure is applied

Steel is a metal alloy composed of iron, carbon and few other elements

There are mainly 3 types of steel according to the amount of carbon present that are mild steel, high carbon steel, and low carbon steel

It is produced by firing process by adding and removing of different components to create a final alloy

it has greater tensile strength and contains about 2-4% of carbon
