Q.10 Explain why rusting of iron objects is faster in coastal areas than in deserts.


Answer :

(1) Iron gets rusted because of the reaction with oxygen present in moist air.

(2) In coastal areas, air contains more moisture because of the sea or ocean,
while in deserts air is dry and hot.

(3) As the content of moisture in the air in coastal areas is higher than in the air in deserts.

(4) So, the process of rusting is faster in coastal areas.
