Metal: a crystalline material that consists of positively charged ions in an order, closely packed arrangement and bonded with a cloud of free electrons.

Alloy: any combination of 2 or more metals that are miscible in a liquid state. When it cools one of 3 categories occurs:

  1. solid solution: completely soluble in the solid phase (gold and ceramo-metal alloys.

  2. eutectic: separates in the solid phase (AgCu)

  3. compound (intermetallic): metals unite in a liquid and solid state (Ag2Sn).

Ceramic: a compound of metallic and non-metallic elements (Al2O3)
