Work on this Doc together with a partner.


What 3 ingredients are needed for rust to occur.

Write a brief paragraph explaining the rusting process (why rusting occurs)

When metal or iron starts to rust, a reddish orange type of metal starts forming, how rust forms is that when the iron reacts to the water and oxygen. Rust is the result of corroding steel after the iron particles have been exposed to oxygen and moisture. 


How could you prevent something from rusting?

One way you could prevent something from rusting is storing the metal or iron in a very low moisture area or in a temperature controlled area. Or if you can’t do this one way you could protect your iron is by applying grease or paint. This protects the metal for a period of time until you need to reapply the coat once the grease or paint starts to fade away. In conclusion, try to keep the iron away from water or moisture and if you can’t protect your metal with grease or paint.
