> I am doing a science fair project on different products that can melt > ice in winter. As an application, I am showing that salt causes the corrosion in cars to speed up.Although I have never studied how to write a chemical equation, I think it would be fun to display a chemical equation for iron and salt water creating rust. Ie was able to find a basic equation for iron and oxygen. 4Fe + 3O2 -à 2 Fe2O3 (and I even learned what it means) I do not know how to incorporate salt water into the equation. This is strictly for display purposes. Can you please help? > Thank you
Re: what is the chemical equation for rust when salt water is used?
