Rust is different because, RUST IS MADE UP OF OXYGEN & IRON!!!

Rust is different from iron and oxygen that is made of bacause the differnce between the compounds and the mixtures.

Rust occurs when iron interacts with oxygen and water, especially in the atmosphere. It's a form of Iron Oxide, and as such is chemically different from iron itself.

Rust is the result of iron and oxygen combining, so the more oxygen added to the equation, the more rust. Iron+Oxygen --> Iron oxide (rust)

Iron does rust by reacting with oxygen.

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.

Iron reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere to make rust, a compound of iron and oxygen called iron oxide.

Rust occurs when iron and oxygen meet and the oxygen causes the iron to decay. Yes in a way, rust is the corroded metal iron.

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

Iron and oxygen have different properties than iron oxide. Oxygen speeds burning and iron oxide doesn't. Iron combines with oxygen and iron oxide is already stable so it doesn't combine with anything. It has a different melting point, etc.

Iron will react with water and oxygen to produce rust. Essentially water has oxygen atoms in it so as long as iron is in contact with water, it will rust.

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

Oxygen and Water. The equation for rust is: Iron + Oxygen + Water -> Hydrated iron (III) oxide. (rust)

Rust is the chemical combination of oxygen and iron.Rust is different from iron and oxygen for the same reason that water is different from oxygen and hydrogen.Once the elements are chemically combined the properties are completely changed. All matter on Earth is made from the chemical combination of less than 100 individual elements.Why is sugar different from soot, hydrogen and oxygen? Sugar has the elements of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen chemically combined. It is not a mixture.

Oxygen reacts with iron to form rust.

Rust is Iron oxide. It contains Iron and Oxygen.

Iron and oxygen. Rust is iron oxide.

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

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

Iron reacts with oxygen to produce rust.

No. Rust is iron oxide - iron and oxygen. In most cases the oxygen comes from liquid water or from water vapor.

Rust is iron oxide made of iron and oxygen.

On iron, the rust is the iron reacting with the oxygen around it and oxidizing, forming iron oxide
