The Chemical Reaction Involved in the Corrosion of Iron Metal is that of:
Oxidation as well as Displacement
Reduction as well as Combination
Oxidation as well as Combination
Reduction as well as Displacement
- Oxidation as well as combination reactions
In the chemical reaction involved in corrosion of iron metal -
Iron + Oxygen + Water → Hydrated Iron Oxide
4Fe + 3O 2 + 2xH 2 O → 2Fe 2 O 3 . xH 2 O
It is an oxidation reaction as Iron gains Oxygen while forming Iron Oxide.
It is a combination reaction as more than 2 substances (Iron, Oxygen and Water) react to form a single product.
