Explain how galvanization of an iron object prevents it from rusting.

Asked by Topperlearning User | 6th Feb, 2018, 01:55: PM

Expert Answer:

In the method of galvanisation, surface of iron is covered with layer of more active metal like zinc. In this way, iron is prevented to come in contact with air and moisture which are required for rusting. Zinc metal does not undergo corrosion and hence prevents the rusting of iron.
