    How does rust affect metal?

    Technically rust is Hydrated Iron (III) Oxide, also known as iron oxide (Fe²O³), as it is caused when iron reacts with oxygen and water. This reaction is known as oxidizing. 

    If a piece of iron is left long enough, with exposure to water and oxygen and not protected, its rusting is inevitable.
