Corrosion

Postby Amir Bayat » Sun Mar 01, 2020 5:12 pm

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?

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.

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

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

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