Rust is the oxidation of iron metal or just iron. Rust is actually iron oxide. It's chemical symbol is Fe2O3.

oxidation is rust and rust weakens iron, iron is supposed to be strong, and therefore oxidation is bad.

Rusting is the oxidation of iron.

Rust is formed as a result of oxidation of iron (Fe) metal.

Rust is the oxidation of iron. It is usually a reddish-brown and is fairly well attached

All rust is is Oxidation. When Oxygen is added to something it's Oxidation... Phosphates can prevent rust.

It's probably oxidation, not rust.

Rust is a form of oxidation and heat contributes to greater rates of oxidation

Yes, metal can "rust" without water. Rust is a form of oxidation, and all that is necessary for oxidation to occur is the presence of oxygen. Without water, however, the process of oxidation is vastly slower.

No. Not only can aluminum itself not rust, since rust is the oxidation of iron, but the sun does not cause rust or speed it up, the water in the air helps speed up the oxidation process.

the oxidation of metal

Rust is the end product of the oxidation of iron. The chemical structure of rust is Fe2O3. The oxidation reaction is 4 Fe + 3 O2 = 2 Fe2O3.

Gold can not rust. Rust is oxidation, and gold is inert to oxygen and even most acids.

rust is generally gritty and occurrs due to oxidation of steel

rust or oxidation can form on almost any metal surface

It can be, when it means oxidation or a fungal plant disease. To rust is a verb.

Rust is a reaction of iron oxidation in the presence of water.

Oxidising, or oxidation. Rust forms from the oxidation of iron, creating Ferrous Oxide (rust). also chickenrust

The process of oxidation

When the water makes the metal rust the oxidation will go on top of the metal and rust.

They can, but you have to understand that magnetism and oxidation (the process that causes rust) are unrelated.

yes, oxidation is the same as rust. rust is scientifically called oxidation, which occurs when oxygen comes in long-term contact with certain metals. over time, the oxygen combines with the metal at an atomic level, forming a new compound called an oxide.

Yes, rusting is exactly an oxidation reaction. When iron reacts with water and oxygen, it forms hydrated iron oxide, which can be seen as rust.
