Fast Rust Task
Walt: synthesis information for multiple sources.
Work on this Doc together with a partner.
What 3 ingredients are needed for rust to occur.
Water - H2O
Iron - Fe.
Oxygen - O
Write a brief paragraph explaining the rusting process (why rusting occurs)
When Iron comes intact with water and oxygen over a long period of time it is exposed to rust. Over time, the oxygen combines with the metal, forming a new compound called an oxide and weakening the bonds of the metal itself.
How could you prevent something from rusting?
In the video I had watched it shows that one of the rust experiment didn’t work because of oil. They put water, a nail and a little bit of oil on the surface. The oil stopped the oxygen from getting in so the nail didn’t rust.
Write 3 sentences explaining something new you’ve learned from this reading.
I have learnt that oil can stop things from rusting
I have also learnt that if you add salt to water, iron and oxygen it speed up the process of rust
Lastly I never new the process of making rust but now I do.
