Corrosion Worksheet

Corrosion is the disintergration of a material into its constituent atoms due to chemical reaction with respect to its surrounding. Corrosion can also be called as electrochemical oxidation of metals in reactions with an oxidant like oxygen.

Corrosion can occur in materials like ceramics, polymers and metals.
