Tin's atomic number is 50 and its symbol is Sn. Although tin is often thought of as a cheap and invaluable metal used to make food cans and quick building roofs, it has had many useful applications throughout history. Tin is a necessary element in the production of bronze which led to massive technological advances during the bronze age. Today more than half of all mined tin was used to make electronic solder. Tin Is also used to plate lead, zinc, and steel for corrosion prevention.
My kids love ‘the wizard of oz’ so they were already familiar with the element Tin from the tin man! The display is awesome. Perfectly centered in the cube. Looks great in the display area with my other cubes! Be careful though it does make me sing ‘we’re off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of oz’ every time I pass it lolol 5 stars every time!!!!
