    Most metals are found in nature as ores. During manufacturing process of converting these ores into metal involves the input of energy .
    And during the corrosion reaction the energy added in manufacturing is released and the material is returned to its oxide State.

    - Corrosion attacks metals by chemical or electrochemical action and converts metals into metallic compounds. These metallic compounds may be oxides, hydroxide or sulphates.

    - During corrosion metals react with oxygen, moisture, carbon dioxide, etc and go back to its original form of oxide. Energy is released during corrosion.

    - Corrosion does not take place in absence of air or oxygen.
