A Little About iPods History
What Makes Up an iPod?
An iPod's most important components are:
- Stainless Steel
- Lithium-ion Battery (free of lead and mercury)
- Circuit board display
1)Stainless Steel: Is poor conductor that is an alloy which in this situation a mixture of metals, such as, Aluminium, Copper, Nickel, and Chromium. Alloys can also be metals and other elements, in an Alloy Steel, Iron is compressed with 1% of Carbon. To be more accurate, Copper is added to improve the structure of steel that makes up an iPod. Nickel makes it corrosion resistance, while Chromium is used to resist the rust.
2)Glass: Is a transparent molecular compound of Silicon and Oxygen, Silicon dioxide (SiO2). Glass is usually added to the screen to protect it and since it is transparent it will allow the user of the iPod to see the screen.
3)Lithium-ion Battery: Is a light-weight high power battery that is used in computers, it is free of Mercury and Lead because they are very dangerous. This battery provides energy for the electrical circuits.
4)Circuit Board Display: Is a flexible plastic board that has silver or gold printed circuits on it.
