Rust-removing chemicals containing hydrochloric or phosphoric acid; nontoxic, acid-free soaking solutions; and liquid or spray rust converters are good products to remove rust from metal. An alternative to chemicals is a... More » Home & Garden Cleaning Stain Removal

Iron rusts when it comes in contact with oxygen and water. It rusts faster in acid rain and salty water. Both oxygen and water are necessary for rusting, which is an oxidation reaction. More »

Chrome does rust, because it is a metal that readily interacts with moisture and oxygen. Chrome is formed by electroplating a metal with the element chromium, which has greater corrosion resistance than most other metals... More »

Three things are required for rust to develop: iron, water and oxygen. Rust, also known as iron oxide, occurs when water begins to react with carbon dioxide in the air to form a very weak carbonic acid, which causes the ... More »

A burning candle is an example of a chemical change because the paraffin wax, which is a hydrocarbon, undergoes a chemical reaction with oxygen to form water and carbon dioxide gas. Because the chemical structure of the ... More »
