Rust is a chemical reaction. Almost any chemical reaction happens faster when the reactant materials are warmed.

yes and no. the water holds oxygen which rusts metal while the salt just makes the process faster

The rust is an oxide of the base metal.

The process in which metal rusts is called oxidation. This happens usually when water is present and the oxygen can bond with the metal releasing hydrogen into the air.

When it rusts, the iron is oxidised and forms a hydrated lead oxide.

The two main factors that influence the rate a metal rusts are moisture and air. Another factor that has some influence is temperature.

They're metal and metal rusts because the iron in metal oxidizes.

Iron rusts in damp air unless it is painted or protected in some other way.

Iron is the only metal that rusts - rust is a specific term for that metal.

Magnetic force has to do with how the atoms and electrons are arranged in a metal. Temperature does not affect this.

When iron rusts, oxide compounds are formed due the interaction between oxygen in the air or in water and the metal. Because of the oxygen atoms binding with the metal, the weight of the metal with rust will increase.

Metal rusts because of a chemical reaction between oxygen and metal. This chemical reaction can be sped up in water.
