Humming birds are the only birds that can fly backwards. They feed mainly on the nectar of flowers, a liquid that is rich in energy. Nectar is an ideal food source, for hummingbirds need an incredible amount of energy to sustain their body metabolism. A hummingbird's wings flap at a rate of about 80 times per second and its tiny heart beats more than 1000 times per minute. This is why they must consume relatively large quantities of food. In the course of a day, a hummingbird consumes about half its body weight in nectar.

Iron is only one chemical element. Steel, on the other hand, is a mixture of at least e elements-iron and carbon. Steel may have as much as 1.5 percent carbon in it. But the steel we use most often has only 0.2 percent carbon in it. Besides carbon, steel may have small amounts of other metals that have been put into the 'melt' on purpose.
Metals like manganese, found in some forms of iron, can improve the quality of steel. But there are also some elements found in steel which do not belong. An element such as sulfur can ruin steel. Steel makers try their best to get rid of it.
Without the use of steel, the face of the world today would look a lot like the way if did in the middle 1800's. We would not have tall skyscrapers, huge steamships, cars, planers, and large machines to make life easier.
