WHAT DOES GRAPHITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

graphite

Graphite

Graphite /ˈɡræfaɪt/ is made almost entirely of carbon atoms, and as with diamond, is a semimetal native element mineral, and an allotrope of carbon. Graphite, meaning "writing stone", was named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789 from the Ancient Greek γράφω, "to draw/write", for its use in pencils, where it is known as lead. Graphite is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions. Therefore, it is used in thermochemistry as the standard state for defining the heat of formation of carbon compounds. Graphite may be considered the highest grade of coal, just above anthracite and alternatively called meta-anthracite, although it is not normally used as fuel because it is difficult to ignite.

Definition of graphite in the English dictionary

The definition of graphite in the dictionary is a blackish soft allotropic form of carbon in hexagonal crystalline form: used in pencils, crucibles, and electrodes, as a lubricant, as a moderator in nuclear reactors, and, in a carbon fibre form, as a tough lightweight material for sporting equipment Also called: plumbago.
