Corrosion

Is corrosion going to be on the test? I do not recall going over it in class.

Also, if it is, can someone explain what occurs in this process?

I don't remember learning this in class? Is this in any of the textbook sections that we have for homework?

Re: Corrosion

Corrosion usually happens at the anode because as the metal is oxidized into metal ions, it loses mass. Over time, this builds up until there is noticeable corrosion.

Re: Corrosion

Corrosion is when metals return to their natural oxidation states. It causes a loss in mass, which corresponds to the anode of a galvanic cell. To prevent this, another metal like zinc or chromium is used to prevent the corrosion

Re: Corrosion

What would indicate that corrosion is taking place in a certain metal?

Re: Corrosion

I think we need to know about rust for the corrosion section
