Rust is the mixture of?
Rusting is also called as the process of slow eating of metals. It takes place in various metals and has no fixed composition. Basically, it is the reaction of some gas and the moisture in the atmosphere with the metal which leads to rusting.
Commonly we relate rusting with iron which reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere
and forms iron oxide. Also, silver rusts too leading to its black colour.
steel will rust because of ether a water and salt mixture or a water and air mixture. for the water and salt the steel will just rust. steel will also rust in plain water. and the science for the water and air. when steel water and oxygen come all together in contact they create Iron Oxide. that is what rust is. by the way Iron Oxide is what gives mars it's red color.
Its Iron Oxide, Iron and Oxygen that is bonded, so its a compound. Expanded answer: Rust is definitely not an element: It contains at least two elements, Fe and O. Rust can be a fairly pure compound with formula Fe2O3. However, when formed in unregulated environments, it usually also contains varying amounts of water and often other constituents. Therefore, most rust is a mixture.
Rust is the chemical combination of oxygen and iron. Rust is different from iron and oxygen for the same reason that water is different from oxygen and hydrogen. Once the elements are chemically combined the properties are completely changed. All matter on Earth is made from the chemical combination of less than 100 individual elements. Why is sugar different from soot, hydrogen and oxygen? Sugar has the elements of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen chemically combined…
Why some metals do not rust is because they are less active. Look on the Periodic table. The further a element is to the right of the table, the more reactive. That is why metals like gold will rust whereas some metal further to the right like Tin will not. It is also why we made alloys, a mixture of metals, where precious metals are mixed with nonreactive metals so to make an alloy which…
alloys (which are a mixture of 2 or more metals) are made because it produces a new material which is stronger/more resistant to heat/more rigid/more easily manipulable and so make the resultant material more usable a common example is steel which is a mixture of iron (which when left exposed to the elements may rust) and carbon. The result is a very strong material which will not rust and is therefor more useful
To remove rust stains from dishes, you can use lemon juice and salt on the stain spots and let this mixture remain on the dishes for at least 24 hours before removing them with water. You can repeat the process if some stains remain. During the 24 hours, you should add small drops of the lemon juice to keep the rust spots moist.
