My nucleus has the highest binding energy per nucleon, so it is the heaviest element that is produced exothermically through fusion and the lightest through fission.
My total nuclear charge is 26 and the mass number 56.
I have four naturally-occurring stable isotopes, 54Fe, 56Fe, 57Fe and 58Fe.
My Physical Properties are:
Melting point: 1535'c
Boiling point: 3000 c
Density: 7.84g per cubic centimeter
Behavior: highly magnetic, good conductors, of heat and electricity,
allying iron with different elements such as carbon, tungsten,
and molybdenum, steels with widely differing properties
can be formed.

I am the most common metal in the universe.
I am one of the more common elements on Earth, making up about 5% of the Earth's crust.

I am a metal extracted from iron ore, and is hardly ever found in the free (elemental) state. In order to obtain elemental iron, the impurities must be removed by chemical reduction.
I am the most used of all the metals, comprising 95 percent of all the metal tonnage produced worldwide. Its combination of low cost and high strength make it indispensable, especially in applications like automobiles, the hulls of large ships, and structural components for buildings.
