Galvanizing is a process used to protect steel by applying a sacrificial coating? Which metal is used in galvanizing?
Correct Answer: A.Zinc.
To provide a sacrificial coating the coating metal must be more reactive than the base metal being protected. Thus gold and copper are not applicable as they are both less reactive than iron and can only provide a passive coating.
Aluminum and zinc are more reactive than iron. Aluminum and zinc both form protective oxide layers that will stop corrosion of the iron, but aluminum is too reactive to be used in exposed weathering conditions. It is zinc that has just the right degree of reactivity that allows it to both protect the iron and not be corroded away, providing a strong and long lasting sacrificial coating.
The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is a test administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The test is designed to test your knowledge in three specific sections; physical sciences such as physics and general chemistry, biological sciences and organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning.
How Should I Study?
The MCAT is a rigorous exam that requires months of planning in order to achieve a great score. It is recommended that you begin your study schedule 3 months prior to your exam date. In addition to answering our practice MCAT questions each day, read this article regarding studying for the MCAT from home.
Register for the MCAT.
The first question many people ask is, “when should I take the MCAT?” The general guideline is to take the MCAT the year before you plan to enter medical school. For example, the class of 2018 should take the MCAT sometime before or during the spring/summer of 2013. Your basic science coursework should be complete by this point.
