More interesting facts on Corrosion

Include this on your site/blog:
Question 1: It can apply to both metals and non-metallic materials, in both the presence and lack of ________.

Question 2: Factors such as relative size of anode (smaller is generally less desirable), types of metal, and operating conditions (temperature, ________, salinity, etc.) will affect galvanic corrosion.
Water vaporPrecipitation (meteorology)HumidityWind

Question 3: Mechanisms which break polymer chains are familiar to biologists because of their effect on ________: ionizing radiation (most commonly ultraviolet light), free radicals, and oxidizers such as oxygen, ozone, and chlorine.

Question 4: Because of their large molecular weight, very little ________ can be gained by mixing a given mass of polymer with another substance, making them generally quite difficult to dissolve.
Statistical mechanicsThermodynamicsEntropyGibbs free energy

Question 5: Sulfate-reducing bacteria are common in lack of oxygen; they produce ________, causing sulfide stress cracking.
Carbon monoxideHydrogen sulfideNitrous oxideNitric oxide

Question 6: Stainless steel can pose special corrosion challenges, since its passivating behavior relies on the presence of a minor alloying component (________, typically only 18%).

Question 7: Passivation in air and water at moderate pH is seen in such materials as ________, stainless steel, titanium, and silicon.

Question 8: Exposure to a liquid metal such as mercury or hot ________ can often circumvent passivation mechanisms.

Question 9: What does the following picture show?

  Rust, the most familiar example of corrosion.
  Titanic's bow exhibiting microbial corrosion damage in the form of 'rusticles'
  Galvanized surface
