    What do you mean by "originated area"?

    I am still not sure what the question is really about. In what context was it asked?

    A metal undergoes a electrochemical corrosion when exposed to moisture air. The parts which are less exposed to oxygen will act as anode and the more oxygen concentrated area will act as cathode
