Welcome to science at home in this experiment we are exploring what happens when steel wool comes in contact with vinegar. Steel wool is made of an iron alloy and has a protective coating to prevent rusting. The vinegar removes the protective coating and exposes the iron to oxygen that quickly oxidizes the steel wool. At the end of this episode you will be able to demonstrate what happens when steel wool come in contact with vinegar, explain why the steel wool rusts and explain what an oxidation reaction is.
