"1.In this experiment I am going to test to find out how different household solutions affect the rate of rusting. I will test this by keeping a nail in a cup with different household solutions.(Apple juice, Orange juice, Water,20% salt water,Pepsi,Coke). 2. I am interested in this experiment because it shows how bad metal rusts when submerged in solutions.3. Results state that the saltwater nails had formed the most rust.4.This could help other people see what liquids are the worst on metals."

One thought on “Effects of salt and other household solution on rate of rusting

  1. Well done! It’s definitely an important topic. Something to consider in the future is material the nail is made of, including whether it is coated or processed in some way.
