Whenever iron things kept in open places for sometime, it acquires a thin film of brownish substance. This is rust and this process is rusting. Chemically iron comes in contact with oxygen and water the reaction takes place forming iron oxide. This can be represented by an equation Fe+O 2 ​ +H 2 ​ O→Fe 2 ​ O 3 ​
