Wezal,
Here is your first answer. Please rate this answer as I work on your other answers. :)

Minerals

1. How do minerals affect society?

Minerals affect society in many ways and in almost every facet of life. Minerals are diverse and can aid in the construction of buildings, better our health by supplying nutrients, and make foods more palatable by serving as spices. One way in which we are most connected to minerals is that they can serve as fertilizer for our common household gardens to farmers' commercial agricultural lands.

2. What is the difference between metallic and nonmetallic minerals? Provide two examples from each category and discuss their uses.

Metallic minerals are minerals, which can be melted into new products. They are typically made of igneous rock, are hard to break, shiny, and malleable. Examples of metallic minerals are iron and tin. We use iron to make construction tools and tin in household goods such as cans and foil. Nonmetallic minerals are those minerals that cannot be made into a new product. These are typically made of sedimentary rock and they are not shiny and malleable, and can be broken easily. Examples include salt and marble. We use salt in our food but we also use non-cooking salt for better traction on icy-snowy roads. Marble is commonly used as counter top and in building ornate features of offices and homes.
