Can I make FeSi?

Postby Tryingmybest » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:13 pm

Can anyone tell me can I make FeSi and what grade form the following material and what would I need to add or removed from sample One and sample Two to produce FeSi?
I have two sets of materials.

Sample One:
Magnetite Fe3O4 75%
Goethite FeO (OH)10 10%
Dolomite CaMg (CO3)2 9%
Hematite Fe2O3 6%

Sample Two:
Hematite Fe2O3 41%
Pseudorutile Fe2Ti3O9 29%
Magnetite Fe3O4 23%
Clinoferrosilite FeSiO3 7%

Hello,
Is this part of a science project or a homework assignment?

The Science Buddies Ask the Expert forum is for students in grades K-12 who are doing science projects. The experts can not help with homework assignments.

If it's part of a science project, please describe your project. Thank you.

Hi,
Are you a student in grades K-12 doing a science project? You are registered as "other adult". If you are a student, please read the Science Buddies Project Guides for science projects or engineering projects. Then describe the hypotheses or the design goals and how you plan to test the hypothesis or develop the design. If you are not doing a science or engineering project for a science fair in grades K-12, then there are other places on the internet where your questions would be more appropriate. Thank you.
