Im doing an experiment and I need to see whether acids or bases corode metals more easily. I tried the experiment with rusty iron nails but didnt get any results!! Ive heard that zinc is reactive but what things in the house contain zinc??

some ointments (but it's an oxide), brass (an alloy of zinc and copper), metal toys (e.g. die-cast toys or cars such as from Matchbox), many metal surfaces are galvanized with a zinc coat (against corrosion).

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that did belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

zinc roof.... for absolute.... ^_^
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

..."best of our knowledge, as far as we know this had never been reported before, though I can't possible read all the published journals on earth, but by perform thorough search in google, the keywords did not match any documents"...
