If some of the sample molecules are singly ionized and reach the ion detector without fragmenting, then the mass-to-electric charge ratio of the ions gives a direct measurement of the weight of the molecule (de Hoffmann and Stroobant 2001). Microscopy The microscope is arguably the most widely used scientific instrument. Microscopes are used routinely in analytical chemistry and materials science, mineral exploration, and environmental science. The three most common types of microscopes, the light microscope, the electron microscope, and the scanning microscope are essential tools for the measurement of properties or for observing and measuring such qualities as the size and shape of particles, the texture and chemical composition of materials, and such physical properties as color, crystallinity, melting point, and refractive index (Eastaugh et al.

When iron, a solid at ambient temperature and pressure, is heated to a high temperature – namely 1538°C – it melts, turning into a liquid; and at 2861°C it boils, changing from a liquid to a gas. Water, on the other hand, the most abundant substance on the surface of the earth, is solid only at very low temperatures: ice (solid water) melts at 0°C and boils at 100°C. Because the temperature range of the liquid state is very narrow (only 100 degrees), water exists naturally on the surface of the planet in all three states, as ice, liquid water, and a gas (water vapor).

The consolidated, hard, and brilliant variety has been valued as a semiprecious gemstone, while powdery hematite has long been and still is widely used as a pigment for the preparation of paints, as well as a mild abrasive, for smoothing and polishing the surface of solid objects. Moreover, since the discovery of the smelting of iron, hematite, in all its varieties, has been used as a source from which the metal iron is extracted (see Chapter 5). Hematite is also just one example of a wide range of minerals that have been and are still used as mineral ores, raw materials from which metals are extracted (see Chapter 5).
