aluminium vs aluminum

aluminium aluminum

Definitions

  • 1) A light, silvery metal extracted from bauxite, and a chemical element (symbol Al) with an atomic number of 13.
  • 2) a pale gold-colored alloy of aluminium and copper, used for journal bearings, etc.
  • 3) (Chem.) same as aluminum, chiefly British in usage.
  • 4) Chemical symbol Al; atomic weight 27.1. A metal of silver-white color and brilliant luster, about as hard as zinc, very malleable and ductile, highly sonorous, and a good conductor of heat and electricity.
  • 5) Aluminium melts at 654.5° C., and the tensile strength of bars made of it is about 28,000 pounds a square inch. The commercial production of the metal began about 1888, the process most largely used, as at Pittsburg and Niagara, being that of Hall, in which anhydrous alumina from bauxite is dissolved in a bath of fused cryolite in the presence of carbon and electrolyzed by a current of 6 or 7 volts and 7,000 amperes. The price has been brought down from $15 to 30 cents a pound, and the annual output increased from 3 to many thousand tons per annum. The only moderate strength of the metal, certain difficulties in working it (as, for instance, in soldering), and its chemical alterability under some conditions have tended to limit its applications. Among the more recent uses made of it may be mentioned the etching of designs for theatrical and other posters, substitution for copper in wire for the transmission of electric currents, the manufacture of a silver-like paint from the powder, and the production of a very high temperature by rapid combustion of the powder in admixture with sodium dioxid. See aluminothermics.

Definitions

  • 1) slang Aircraft or other machinery made partially or wholly of aluminum.
  • 2) A metallic chemical element (symbol Al) with an atomic number of 13.
  • 3) A silvery-white, ductile metallic element, the most abundant in the earth's crust but found only in combination, chiefly in bauxite. Having good conductive and thermal properties, it is used to form many hard, light, corrosion-resistant alloys. Atomic number 13; atomic weight 26.9815; melting point 660.32°C; boiling point 2,519°C; specific gravity 2.70; valence 3. cross-reference: Periodic Table.
  • 4) The metallic element forming the base of alumina. This metal is white, but with a bluish tinge, and is remarkable for its resistance to oxidation, and for its lightness, having a specific gravity of about 2.6. Atomic weight 27.08. Symbol Al. Also called aluminium.
  • 5) a silvery ductile metallic element found primarily in bauxite
  • 6) Same as aluminium.
