Rusting Process

Postby Lexie Baughman 2C » Sun Mar 03, 2019 3:55 pm

What is the chemical formula of the rusting process? I'm not understanding the book's explanation of it.

The rusting process equation is Fe+O2+H2O----> Fe2O3*H20. Refer to 7th edition 6N.21 problem for more clarification of it in practice. Basically, you need Fe (iron) plus H20 (water) plus O2 (oxygen) for the rusting process to be initiated.
