How about you give us an example of a product that can be forged and cast and discuss the details of your findings and which might be better? Currently it sounds like a badly worded homework.

Learning exercises:

  • try to forge something made of cast iron, and see what happens
  • try to cast something made of wrought iron, and see what happens
  • explain the meaning of the colloquial term "horses for courses"

Baton passed over.

When a product is cast, it usually is from molten material, which poured from its liquid state into a mold, to cool and solidify. A forged product is normally never melted. It is heated to a plastic state, an then pressed, stamped, or beaten into its final shape. The processes, and materials used to create objects by these technologies fill volumes, and will require considerable time to read and digest.
