Expert Answer:


Corrosion of iron is known as rusting.

Rusting is a slow oxidation process in which iron slowly reacts with oxygen of the air in the presence of moisture and produces a flaky brown substance called rust. 


Rust is hydrated ferric oxide ( ), which forms a reddish brown coating over iron.
