Corrosion Engineering Internship Test

Intern has to take Corrosion Engineering internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Corrosion Engineering topic.

1. What are the advantages of corrosion?
(A) Protection of metals by surficial oxide layer
(B) Zn-carbon electrochemical reactions in the battery
(C) Decrease in the strength of material
(D) Protection of metals by the surficial oxide layer and Zn-carbon electrochemical reactions in the battery
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Initially passivating metals undergoes corrosion in order to form oxide layer. These thick, dense oxide layer acts as a strong barrier and protects the inner metal against corrosion. The Zn-carbon batteries works on the principle of galvanic corrosion. It involves conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy by these electrochemical reactions.

2. _______ is a chemical substance which reduces the corrosion rate.
(A) Corrosion inhibitor
(B) Corrosion initiator
(C) Electrolyte
(D) Corrosive medium
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: An inhibitor is a substance that, when added in small concentrations to an environment, decreases the corrosion rate.
Following are the types of inhibitors:
i. Adsorption-type
ii. Hydrogen-evolution poisons
iii. Scavengers
iv. Vapor-phase

3. Thermal gradients across the metal wall causes Stress cracking corrosion.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Thermal gradients across the metal wall induces higher stresses in the metal. Internal stresses in the corrosive environments is the reason for the stress corrosion cracking.

4. What are the uses of corrosion rate estimation of materials in daily life?
(A) To predict the life time of a component
(B) To compare the corrosive-resistant of materials
(C) To increases the corrosion rate
(D) To predict the life time and to compare the corrosive resistant of materials
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Corrosion rate expression is used to quantify the corrosion process. This helps us to predict the life time of a component and to compare with different materials. This also helps us to change the process variables in order to decrease the corrosion rate.

5. Which of the following are the types of polarization?
(A) Activation polarization
(B) Activation and Concentration polarization
(C) Resistance polarization
(D) Activation, Concentration and Resistance polarization
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Polarization is the potential difference occurred due to the non-equilibrium conditions, due to the change in concentration or temperature. These are classified into three types. They are i) Activation polarization ii) Concentration polarization iii)Resistance polarization.
