Also contains definition of: corrosion current
The @[email protected] transferred per unit time at a specified surface. Using Faraday's law, the @[email protected] rate, \(\nu_{\mathrm{cor}}\), can be formally expressed as an @[email protected] which at the @[email protected] is called the corrosion current, \(I_{\mathrm{cor}}\), e.g. for the anodic @[email protected] of one component of a material with \(\nu_{\mathrm{cor}}\) in \(\text{mol s}^{-1}\) and \(I_{\mathrm{cor}}\) in \(\mathrm{A}\) one obtains \(I_{\mathrm{cor}}=n\ F\ \nu_{\mathrm{cor}}\), \(n\) being the @[email protected] of the @[email protected] and \(F\) the @[email protected]
