Iron is the only metal that can rust.
The usual term for the destruction of a metal by oxidation is corrosion, and 'rust' or 'rusting' is the term for corrosion specific to iron and its compounds.
Metals need to be protected against rust and tarnish because rust and tarnish eat metals.
Non-ferrous metals do not rust. Rust is a term generally given to oxidized iron.
Only metals containing iron rust. Other metals, over time, corrode.
the metals that dont rust are gold, stainless steel and silver
Explosure to moist air will form rust on metals.
The metals that do not rust or degrade outdoors are diamond plate, gold, iridium, and platinum. Other types of metals can rust or corrode differently.
It makes metals rust because it has acids in it which effects the form of the metal and then in rusults make it rust.
Most metals rust but there are a few that are highly resistant such as Gold and stuff
No, since rust is a chemical change (oxidation).
any metal with out iron will not 'rust'
No not really, metals rust. However, rust can be considered metal decomposition (kind of).
Because Iron has substances such as Hydrogen, Sodium, and Clorine, which makes the metals rust alot quicker then other metals.
Why some metals do not rust is because they are less active. Look on the Periodic table. The further a element is to the right of the table, the more reactive. That is why metals like gold will rust whereas some metal further to the right like Tin will not. It is also why we made alloys, a mixture of metals, where precious metals are mixed with nonreactive metals so to make an alloy which will not rust.
Light and water and Oxygen. Metals which easily form oxides, especially when wet, will rust.
no rust mostly happens to metals and diamonds are not metal
Rust is the name given to the compound Iron oxide, which forms when Iron reacts with Oxygen in the air. Metals which do not contain Iron or Chlorine don't rust.
No, not all metals rust. Rust itself is iron oxide and comes about when iron metal oxidises; therefore only Iron rusts.
Rust is classified as a protist. However, this is not the rust that occurs in metals but a fungal disease which is known as rust and smut.
Metals get rust because of oxygen. To explain, when air (which has oxygen in it) is able to get to the metal after a period of time rust starts to appear (Rust is also called iron oxide. So rust appears only appears on iron.)
no metalloid cannot rust because they posssess the characteristics of both metals and non metals. but they are not metals.they cannot be oxidize.
no. it is chemical i think
No it is a chemical property
No. Iron or metals containing iron rust, but not bodies.
