Basic Corrosion Theory

  • Samuel A. Bradford


Engineering metals are unstable on this planet. While humans thrive in the earth’s environment of oxygen, water, and warm temperatures, their metal tools and equipment all corrode if given the opportunity. The metals try to lower their energy by spontaneously reacting to form solutions or compounds that have a greater thermodynamic stability.
