6N.21

Postby Gabriella Bates 2L » Fri Mar 06, 2020 10:13 am

"(a) What is the approximate chemical formula of rust? (b) What is the oxidizing agent in the formation of rust? (c) How does the presence of salt accelerate the rusting process?"

Are we supposed to be able to solve for this mathematically, or should we memorize it form the reading?

This is more of a conceptual question. The chapter itself talks about it in the last section, so we probably just have to understand the general idea.

In order to solve for this mathematically, you probably need to memorize or at least understand the basic concepts from the reading, so I would put emphasis on the memorizing in the form of reading aspect of the material.
