    Can anyone tell me what the chemical symbol Fe means. I think it's an element, but I'm not sure.

    It's to help someone with homework and I didn't do Chemistry at school (probably would have forgoten by now anyway).

    Cheers.

    Thanks for that.

    So if an experiment required you to use an electrode composed of Fe, then in simple terms they would be asking you to use a rod of iron.

    Why thank you, very much appreciated.

    manrod used the phrase "rod of iron" in another thread and the rest, as they say, is geography.
