    I could help a lot more if you put your question in order. It runs on and on, has no punctuation marks, I can't tell where a sentence starts or ends. But I get the general idea. You want to determine iron in a sample. Look in your text or on the web. The Zimmerman-Reinhart procedure works well. Steel wool will go into solution much easier than iron ore; therefore, you won't have trouble dissolving the sample. Here is one site but there are others.
