Homework Help: How to Determine manganese of steel sample?

  1. Jul 21, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have to list out some ways on how to determine the manganese content of a steel sample.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I can only think of one right now, which is calorimetry...but I was wondering are there other simpler possible ways of determining it?

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, SIM, RBS come to mind. Then there must be chemical methods.
