This reaction is in fast speed such as explosion.
Larger surface area will increase the speed of
the reaction and increase the energy output.
Ex : coal dust reacts faster than coal when
burning due more surface area touch with
Food start to be unpleasant if you keep it for a
long time. This due to oxygen reacting with the
The process Is called oxidation.
Oxidation cannot take place without oxygen.
In food chemical added to the food to prevent

The water vapor is containing oxygen.
The brown flake is called rust.
If metal get rust usually they’re not strong
If the steel in a bridge is not strong the bridge
will break down.
Metal can be coated with other metal to
Chromium can be coat to iron to in process
called chromium plating.
Galvanising plating (Zinc Plating)
Mix metal with other. (Stainless Steel)
Iron coated with zinc will protect the iron.
Because the zinc is more reactive and can be
peel of easily.
Silver can be say to be tarnished because of
rusting. The rust can be remove by polishing.
Copper in the roof react with oxygen to form
rust called vendigris.
Bronze develop patina.
