A Conversation for The Periodic Table of the Elements


Post 1


For my science homework i have to explain why a iron nail decreases in weight when left in a beaker for two weeks. The nail also rusts. I know about oxidation but i do not understand how this affects the weight.

I would be very grateful if someone could get back to me with some infomation.
