Fun Facts:
 

-At normal temperatures tin is malleable but acquires brittleness when cooled.

-Tin forms an alloy with lead. The alloy is called spotted metal. Lead cools a little earlier giving the surface a dappled effect. This phenomenon gave the alloy its name. Another important alloy of tin is the one with copper. It is bronze.
