    For the question about why steel is converted into iron I put down iron is brittle and someother things I can't rememeber. Was this what you had put down?

    I wrote that iron straight from the blast furnace contains impurities so this iron is too soft, and brittle so converting it into an alloy will make it stronger but I dunno if it's right

    Steel is harder and so more useful

    Steel is corrosion resistant

    Yes I put blast furnace iron is impure so is brittle, steel is stronger and corrosion-resistant
