tin
n 1: a silvery malleable metallic element that resists
corrosion; used in many alloys and to coat other metals to
prevent corrosion; obtained chiefly from cassiterite where
it occurs as tin oxide [synonym: {tin}, {Sn}, {atomic number
50}]
2: a vessel (box, can, pan, etc.) made of tinplate and used
mainly in baking
3: metal container for storing dry foods such as tea or flour
[synonym: {canister}, {cannister}, {tin}]
4: airtight sealed metal container for food or drink or paint
etc. [synonym: {can}, {tin}, {tin can}]

Tin \Tin\, n. [As. tin; akin to D. tin, G. zinn, OHG. zin, Icel.
& Dan. tin, Sw. tenn; of unknown origin.]
1. (Chem.) An elementary substance found as an oxide in the
mineral cassiterite, and reduced as a soft silvery-white
crystalline metal, with a tinge of yellowish-blue, and a
high luster. It is malleable at ordinary temperatures, but
brittle when heated. It is softer than gold and can be
beaten out into very thin strips called tinfoil. It is
ductile at 2120, when it can be drawn out into wire which
is not very tenacious; it melts at 4420, and at a higher
temperature burns with a brilliant white light. Air and
moisture act on tin very slightly. The peculiar properties
of tin, especially its malleability, its brilliancy and
the slowness with which it rusts make it very serviceable.
With other metals it forms valuable alloys, as bronze, gun
metal, bell metal, pewter and solder. It is not easily
oxidized in the air, and is used chiefly to coat iron to
protect it from rusting, in the form of tin foil with
mercury to form the reflective surface of mirrors, and in
solder, bronze, speculum metal, and other alloys. Its
compounds are designated as stannous, or stannic. Symbol
Sn (Stannum). Atomic weight 117.4.
[1913 Webster]

Tin
Heb. bedil (Num. 31:22; Ezek. 22:18, 20), a metal well known in
ancient times. It is the general opinion that the Phoenicians of
Tyre and Sidon obtained their supplies of tin from the British
Isles. In Ezek. 27:12 it is said to have been brought from
Tarshish, which was probably a commercial emporium supplied with
commodities from other places. In Isa. 1:25 the word so rendered
is generally understood of lead, the alloy with which the silver
had become mixed (ver. 22). The fire of the Babylonish Captivity
would be the means of purging out the idolatrous alloy that had
corrupted the people.
