bathtub removal

I need to remove a bathtub and I need to know whether it is a steel or cast iron. Is there a definitive way to determine which one it is?

if you knock on it the sound can tell you. a cast tub will be a much denser sound. the steel one will have a higher pitch. same as if you hit a steel frying pan vs. a cast iron skillet. you can also take the overflow cover off and see how thick the tub is, a steel tub is going to be very thin where a cast tub is around 1/4" thick.
