No, it doesn't. The Statue of Liberty looks green because copper has a property of getting green due to carbon dioxide and the moisture in the air. That is not rusting; it is called copper patina.
The term rusting is reserved for the corrosion of iron.
Copper doesn't rust
Copper corrodes, things made of iron rust. Copper can corrode, but it takes longer than it does for iron to rust.
No, because copper pipes cannot rust.
Copper doesn't rust
In recent years pennies have been made of steel plated in copper, and steel is prone to rust. Older pennies were made of pure copper, or copper and zinc, which did not rust.
Bronze is an alloy of copper and the element 'tin'. Copper and bronze do not contain any iron, and only iron can rust; so the answer is that steel will rust the fastest and copper and bronze will never rust. copper does not rust because Copper does oxidise, but the layer of "rust" adheres to the copper itself and forms a layer of protection over the rest of the object preventing further oxidation. Hence copper roofs are green or black.
steel because copper doesnt rust it turns green
Plastic pipe does not rust, brass does not rust, copper does not rust. Stainless steel does not rust, lead pipe does not rust.
Copper does not rust. It will, on contact with the air, form a greenish "verdigris" of copper sulphate on it's surface - but that is not rust.OOps - that should be copper carbonate. Copper sulphate is highly soluble and would not produce a patina. Maybe some copper oxide as well.
Copper can not rust there is a substance in it that may make it turn brown but then it turns green just look at the statue of liberty she is green and made of copper! Rust, by the way, is oxidized iron.
Pennies are copper and do not rust.
It's probably oxidation, not rust.
Copper wont rust, as rust is a proses only applicable to iron, how ever it will oxidises
copper does not rust
It forms copper oxide which is rust.
Oxygen turns copper green.
i dont know of an experiment to test this but copper will not rust, and bronze being comprised of tin and copper, the answer to which will rust fastest is steel. I hope this helps you.
Most likely some other object has dripped rust onto the copper, which can be removed. Copper does not rust, but it does form a green patina over time.
copper and bronze can never rust but steel can the other guys answer was wrong copper and bronze are un-rustable!
It corrodes. Rust is iron + water + oxygen
Because pure copper doesn't contain any iron and rust, by definition, is iron oxide.
car radiators used to be made of copper, copper doesnt rust. most radiators are now made from aluminum.aluminum also does no rust
copper turns to blue-green copper oxide.
