# What are two ways that elements can be made?

Feb 7, 2016

Question needs clarification because there are several ways to obtain elements: nuclear reaction, chemical reaction, electrochemistry and electrothermic processes.

#### Explanation:

Nuclear reactions like neutron bombardment of nucleus, or bombardment of elements, nuclei and charged particles in particle accelerator allows you to obtain transuranium element.

Through chemical reactions, you can obtain elements like iron (reduction in blast furnace) and sodium (through carbothermal reduction)

Electrochemistry can be used to obtain aluminium

Through electrothermic processes, you can obtain graphite.
