Iron is the only element that will rust ! ! !

Rust is not an element. Rust is a compound which is made up of iron oxide.

No, rust is specific to the element Iron.

Iron is an element; rust is a compound of iron, hydroxide and oxygen.

Rust is an iron oxide compound. There are several different iron oxides that make up rust.

Rust is not an element but compounds of iron. The brown oxide of iron is ferrous oxide and the black oxide of iron is ferric oxide.

iron is one anything that can be oxidized will rust

No. It's an oxide of iron.

Iron. Iron, when exposed to oxygen, turns into iron oxide - better known as rust.

Rust, by definition, is oxidized iron. Therefore iron (Fe) is the only metal element which will rust. However, iron is incorporated into many alloys, such as steel, which will also rust.

Zinc is commonly used to coat iron to prevent rust.

in its pure form, iron is an element, but that may not be what you are referring to.... if you have iron oxide (rust), this is a compound of iron and oxygen.

I do not think that there is such an element. Oxygen is what reacts with iron to form rust, but it's a gas at room temperature. I may be wrong, though.

Rust is the name of a family of iron oxides. The most common form if Fe2O3.

Rust is not on the periodic table, it is a compound (of iron and oxygen) not an element.

Iron is homogeneus because it is an element. Rust is homogeneous because anywhere you find rust it will be exactly the same in physical and chemical qualities.

Iron reacts with oxygen in air to for rust.

The element is iron.Rust is a general term for a series of iron oxides, usually red oxides, formed by the reaction of iron and oxygen in the presence of water or air moisture.

The most common magnetic element that corrodes to form rust is iron. When aligned, atoms of iron will possess a magnetic field that will lead to interaction with other magnetic, ferrous materials. Iron will oxidize to form rust.

Rust isn't an element at all and is fact a chemical compound. Rust is formed by two elements: Oxygen (O) and Iron (Fe). Rust's chemical name is Iron Oxide, which can be expressed as a formula like so;FeO

The term "rust" technically applies only to iron oxides and its variations, so the element carbon cannot rust.

Iron oxide is rust. It is formed when the element iron reacts with oxygen in the water or air.

the exposure of water or moisture to the iron nail will convert the element to fe+3
