    Hi

    If iron gas which was produced when iron was heated to above 3000° is left to cool to room temp., will it become dust and falls under gravity in a vacuum tube?


    Thank you

    Some will, but some will have stuck to the inside of the tube whilst in the gaseous state.

    Blackening of the inside of lightbulbs, by deposition of the vapourisation of the heated element, is a serious problem.
