Unformatted text preview: (a) Aluminum and cast iron (b) Cadmium and zinc (c) Low-carbon steel and copper 4a. What is CPR? Why is it important? b. A thick steel sheet of area 100 in. 2 is exposed to air near the ocean. After a one-year period it was found to experience a weight loss of 485 g due to corrosion. To what rate of corrosion, in both mpy and mm/yr, does this correspond? 5. This is a study problem. You do not have to submit the answers. The solutions will be posted. Nickel experiences corrosion in an acid solution according to the reaction Ni + 2H + → Ni 2+ + H 2 The rates of both oxidation and reduction half-reactions are controlled by activation polarization. (a) Compute the rate of oxidation of Ni (in mol/cm 2-s) given the following activation polarization data: For Nickel For Hydrogen i = 10 –8 A/cm 2 i = 6 × 10 –7 A/cm 2 β = +0.12 β = –0.10 (b) Compute the value of the corrosion potential....
