Aim: To prevent rusting temporarily by covering 2 bolts with cloth tape and scotch tape.

Materials: Cloth tape, scotch tape, 2 bolts


  1. Arrange items necessary for the experiment (cloth tape, scotch tape, 2 bolts).
  1. Cover the first bolt with cloth tape so that no gaps are visible.
  2. Cover the second bolt with scotch tape so that no gaps are visible.
  1. Come back a day later and unravel the tape off each bolt.
  2. Observe what happened and the differences between the two bolts.


Hypothesis: I predict that both bolts will rust slowly due to the little oxygen particles inside both tapes.
