(b) In another set up the students coated iron nails with zinc metal and noted that, iron nails coated with zinc prevents rusting. They also observed that zinc initially acts as a physical barrier, but an extra advantage of using zinc is that it continues to prevent rusting even if the layer of zinc is damaged. Name this process of rust prevention and give any two other methods to prevent rusting
b) Galvanization is the process of coating Iron with a sacrificial layer of Zinc to protect it from rusting.
Other ways of preventing rusting of Iron are:
- Chromium plating
