Iron and oxygen are the two elements that make up rust.

There are a couple of elements that combine to make rust, or iron oxide. These two elements are oxygen and iron.

when certain elements (such as steel) are exposed to oxygen, they react, and rust is formed. However this reaction is very slow

The present tense is:I/You/We/They rust.He/She/It rusts.The present participle is rusting.The past tense is rusted.The past participle is rusted.

A compound is 2 or more elements permanently combined. Rust is a combination of iron and oxygen, both elements- into iron oxide, a compound.

Most nails are made of steel. We know that steel is an alloy of iron and a bit of carbon (along with a bit of some other metals). Nails are often coated by the makers to inhibit rust, but when the coating fails, the steel is exposed to the elements or environment. Moisture and oxygen, which are present in air, attack exposed steel and form rust, and that's why a nail can rust.

In order for metal to rust, both oxygen and water must be present. :)

Yes, alloys do rust faster than pure elements. That is so because alloys are made of more than one metal, and pure elements are, well PURE
