Rust is oxidized iron and occurs when oxygen chemically reacts with iron

oxygen reacts with iron and forms rust Oxygen reacts with iron to form iron oxide.

Screws rust because the iron reacts with oxygen to form iron oxide.

NO! It reacts with air to form iron oxide (AKA rust) and water to form iron hydroxide (AKA rust)

Yes, ability to form rust is chemical because here iron reacts with water and oxygen to form iron oxide or rust.

Yes, iron can form red-brown flaky rust. It is one of the variant forms of rust when it reacts with oxygen.

it forms iron oxide, and it can/should form rust

Iron rust is a chemical change because during rusting, iron reacts with moisture in the air to form it oxides. The brown coloured rust is nothing but oxides of iron in crude form.

Iron oxide, which is rust. When oxygen reacts with iron the iron "oxidizes" forming iron oxide (rust).

I'm sure you meant to ask what makes iron rust. Rusting is a different way of saying oxidation. Oxygen reacts with iron to form iron oxide, or rust.

it can rust it reacts with atmosphere and reacts with iron oxide then it get rusted

Iron reacts with oxygen to produce rust.

Iron CAN shine. However, when exposed to oxygen it reacts to form iron oxide- rust. And THAT is not shiny.

Rust is caused when oxygen reacts with iron.Iron oxide does not cause rust, it is rust.

Rust is usually caused by a reaction known as oxidation, where iron reacts with oxygen to form iron oxide.

When iron reactions with oxygen to form rust, the iron atoms, Fe reacts with the oxygen atoms, O2 to create iron (III) oxide, Fe2O3.4Fe + 3O2 -----> 2Fe2O3Or2Fe + 3/2O2 -----> Fe2O3

iron oxide or dioxide is form or its commonly known as rust

The oxygen dissolved in the water reacts with the iron to form rust.

No, the iron reacts with oxygen to create iron oxide (rust).

Rust is caused when iron reacts with water. Wet iron, if left wet for a while, while oxidize and form a thin layer of rust. This can be rubbed off.

The rusting of a nail is a chemical change as the Iron reacts with Oxygen in the air to form Rust.

In that reaction, each iron atom loses three electrons.

Rust (also known as Iron Oxide) is formed when Iron (Fe) combines with oxygen (O).

Metal reacting with oxygen is known as oxidation. A common form of this process is found in the rusting of iron, where the iron reacts with oxygen to form iron oxide (known as rust).

Rust is Iron Oxide which has accumlated on top of the iron. The top layer of the iron, when exposed to moisture or water, reacts with the oxygen in the air to form rust. Rust can also form when Iron is exposed to a strong oxidizer or acids. But rust is not a chemical property of iron, it's in fact a completely different compound which used to be iron before reacting with oxygen.
