What are the conditions necessary for rusting?
The conditions necessary for rusting are water (or water vapour) and air, specifically Oxygen. If one condition is absent and the other is present then rusting would not occur but if both are present then rusting will occur ...

Can water vapor rust iron?
Rusting will only occur in the presence of both water and oxygen. In the presence of oxygen, water vapour in the air will cause rusting to occur. So unless you are talking about the iron coming into contact with water vapour but when there is no oxygen, the answer is yes. ...

Will iron rust if its with calcium chloride?
The iron would not rust, because calcium chloride is a desiccant. For rusting to occur there are two vital components: water and oxygen. Since calcium chloride is a desiccant, it would absorb the water, so rusting would not occur. ...

What is the role of moisture in formation of rust?
moisture contains water which is essential for rusting to occur. Rusting can't occur unless oxygen and water are available . 4Fe + 6(O2) + X(H2o) --->2( Fe2O3).X H2o X depends on the amount of water present .. hope this helps ...
Asked in Chemistry
What are the factors that cause rusting?
There are many factors involved which effect the rate of rusting for a given metal. The factors without which rusting would not occur are exposure of the metal to water and oxygen. When these are both present rusting is likely to occur. Factors which increase the rate of rusting: Higher temperature High water salinity Higher atmospheric pressure Painting the metal prevents it from rusting by isolating it from oxygen and water. Biological Corrosion is made from living organisms, and living cells and bacteria. The cells are...

How thing rust?
Rusting is the process of formation of Iron Oxides on meatls most commonly Iron. Rusting can only take place in presence of three things : IRon , Water , and Air or Oxygen. If even one of these is absent rusting cannot occur. ...
