A Writing Implement-Pen

pen is a writing implement used to apply ink to a surface, such as paper, for writing or drawing. Normally pens can be divided into ballpoint pen, roller ballpen, fountain pen, and felt or ceramic tip pen.

The main modern types of pens can be categorized by the kind of writing tip or point on the pen:

1. ballpoint pen dispenses ink by rolling a small hard sphere, usually 0.5–1.2 mm and made of brasssteel or tungsten carbide. The ballpoint pen is usually reliable and comes in both inexpensive and expensive types. The ink dries almost immediately on contact with paper. It has replaced the fountain pen as the most common tool for everyday writing.

2. A roller ballpen dispenses a water-based liquid or gel ink through a ball tip similar to that of a ballpoint pen, and it can also be called gel ink pen. The less-viscous ink is more easily absorbed by paper than oil-based ink, and the pen moves more easily across a writing surface. The roller ballpen was initially designed to combine the convenience of a ballpoint pen with the smooth "wet ink" effect of a fountain pen.

3. A fountain pen uses water-based liquid ink delivered through a nib. The ink flows from a reservoir through a "feed" to the nib, then through the nib, due to capillary action and gravity. The nib has no moving parts and delivers ink through a thin slit to the writing surface. A fountain pen reservoir can be refillable or disposable, this disposable type being an ink cartridge. 

4. marker, has a porous tip of fibrous material. The smallest, finest-tipped markers are used for writing on paper. Medium-tip markers are often used by children for coloring and drawing. Larger markers are used for writing on other surfaces such as corrugated boxes, whiteboards and for chalkboards, often called "liquid chalk" or "chalkboard markers." Markers with wide tips and bright but transparent ink, called highlighters, are used to mark existing text. Markers designed for children or for temporary writing (as with a whiteboard or overhead projector) typically use non-permanent inks. Large markers used to label shipping cases or other packages are usually permanent markers.
