Question

The chemical process in the production of steel from haematite ore involves

Solution

Correct option is

Oxidation followed by reduction

In haematite, some FeO is also present alongwith Fe2O3. Thus, first of all this FeO is oxidised to Fe2O3 and after that the Fe2O3 gets reduced to Fe3O4 and then FeO and finally to Fe. Hence, in this process, first oxidation occurs and after that reduction takes place.
