Grade 7 Science Experiment 3 - Exploring Rust Resistance
The purpose of this science fair project is to determine which type of metal is the most rust resistant. Rust can be red, brown, and yellow. Rust can be scaly or powdery in consistency. Rust can form due to water and salt. Iron reacts with oxygen to form iron oxide which is rust. Aluminum reacts with oxygen to form aluminum oxide, while copper produces copper carbonate. This science fair project needs to be completed over at least ten days.
The different types of metals will produce more rust. Metals exposed to saltwater will produce more rust faster than metals exposed to tap water.
