Tungsten, an aa kent as wolfram, is a chemical element wi the chemical seembol W an atomic nummer 74. The wird tungsten comes frae the Swadish leid tung sten directly translatable tae hivy stane,[3] tho the name is volfram in Swadish tae distinguish it frae Scheelite, which in Swadish is alternatively named tungsten.
