I would like to obtain the characteristics and properties of the Alloy Chromel. How do I download that information from the database of Wolfram Alpha and then print it in a Mathematica Notebook?

    $\begingroup$ Seems obvious you should do what's suggested...You have a blocked activation key. $\endgroup$ – morbo Mar 17 '19 at 10:37

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, you need to contact wolfram, the error suggests this. $\endgroup$ – morbo Mar 17 '19 at 11:19

    $\begingroup$ It does say "Please contact Wolfram" in the error message; that's not a problem anyone here on SE can take care of. $\endgroup$ – J. M.'s technical difficulties Mar 17 '19 at 12:05

    $\begingroup$ Are you using an illegally licensed version of Mathematica? $\endgroup$ – ktm Mar 17 '19 at 15:58

Depending on the version you have, I'm running 11.2, you can type simply




note that just one or two equal signs, that will ask WA directly. Here is a blog post explaining the feature from WA blog

    $\begingroup$ Equivalently, evaluate WolframAlpha["chromel alloy properties"]. $\endgroup$ – J. M.'s technical difficulties Mar 17 '19 at 10:20
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I was doing that, but I have an error. I uploaded an imaging in my post showing it $\endgroup$ – DieDauphin Mar 17 '19 at 10:37

    $\begingroup$ @Delfin - code works fine for others. You need to contact Wolfram. $\endgroup$ – Bob Hanlon Mar 17 '19 at 12:57
