1 Answer

Solution :-

Iron articles are painted to prevent them from rusting. When left unpainted, the metal surface comes in contact with the atmospheric oxygen and in the presence of moisture it from Iron(III) oxide. But if painted the surface does not come in contact with moisture and air thus preventing Rusting.
