Amount of iron in the solar system

  1. Sep 5, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone

    Does anyone know of any source where the total amount of iron in the solar system has been estimated?

    Free iron, isotopes, oxides, etc.

    I've been reading here and there about element abundance on Earth and in the cosmos, and am curious if solar percentage of iron is comparable to the percentage in the cosmos.
