What’s the difference between lead and graphite?

    Lead is a soft, silvery metal used for various purposes and can be found in car batteries. Graphite is a type of carbon that is found in the form of a black powder and is commonly used as a lubricant for locks. Graphite is used in the form of charcoal to fuel barbecues. Their elemental makeup is proof that they possess very different qualities and properties. Contrary to its name, pencil lead is not made from lead at all, but rather by graphite.

    Graphite is not used in the “form of charcoal for barbecues”. Charcoal and graphite are both mostly carbon, but they are not even close to being the same thing – no more than elemental carbon as graphite is the same as elemental carbon as diamond.
