Bronze is an alloy of copper and the element 'tin'. Copper and bronze do not contain any iron, and only iron can rust; so the answer is that steel will rust the fastest and copper and bronze will never rust. copper does not rust because Copper does oxidise, but the layer of "rust" adheres to the copper itself and forms a layer of protection over the rest of the object preventing further oxidation. Hence copper roofs are green or black.
Oxide means oxygen. so its copper and oxygen needed to make copper oxide or in normal talk... rust!
Copper corrodes, things made of iron rust. Copper can corrode, but it takes longer than it does for iron to rust.
Any metal that is an element, like copper, iron, manganese, etc will rust (or oxidize, if you want to get technical).
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, because copper pipes cannot rust.
Rust is a COMPOUND. rust is a element you stupid fool suk my prik
In recent years pennies have been made of steel plated in copper, and steel is prone to rust. Older pennies were made of pure copper, or copper and zinc, which did not rust.
steel because copper doesnt rust it turns green
copper is an element. but copper wire is a processed element.
Plastic pipe does not rust, brass does not rust, copper does not rust. Stainless steel does not rust, lead pipe does not rust.
Copper does not rust. It will, on contact with the air, form a greenish "verdigris" of copper sulphate on it's surface - but that is not rust.OOps - that should be copper carbonate. Copper sulphate is highly soluble and would not produce a patina. Maybe some copper oxide as well.
Copper can not rust there is a substance in it that may make it turn brown but then it turns green just look at the statue of liberty she is green and made of copper! Rust, by the way, is oxidized iron.
Pennies are copper and do not rust.
It's probably oxidation, not rust.
No. Copper is an element. Oxygen is an element. Copper oxide is a compound of the two.
Copper sulphate is a compound. Copper is an element. Sulfur is an element.
Copper wont rust, as rust is a proses only applicable to iron, how ever it will oxidises
It forms copper oxide which is rust.
Copper is a chemical element. It can be a compound but copper is usually known as a chemical element.
i dont know of an experiment to test this but copper will not rust, and bronze being comprised of tin and copper, the answer to which will rust fastest is steel. I hope this helps you.
Most likely some other object has dripped rust onto the copper, which can be removed. Copper does not rust, but it does form a green patina over time.
copper and bronze can never rust but steel can the other guys answer was wrong copper and bronze are un-rustable!
It corrodes. Rust is iron + water + oxygen
