I'm fairly new to physics forums so cut me some slack for being a noob. I've just noticed that my brand new snowboard's edge has rusted (oxidised). I live in Australia and it's been stored in my room receiving sunlight everyday. I'm guessing this probably caused the rusted edge? Anyway, I learnt about Redox reactions in chemistry and I'm thinking maybe I can fix my snowboards rusted edge by creating a Redox reaction.
I can't seem to find the exact metal the edge is made out of, but most of the info I found was that it was made from a type of steel. Therefore, if we make the snowboard's edge the oxidising agent and make it undergo reduction it will receive electrons. Would this reverse the oxidising process?
If this would reverse the oxidisation, could anyone recommend how I will go about creating this redox reaction?
Thanks in advance,
E0 values I'm guessing?
