why tin can are used to store food instead of iron can

tin can are used  for storing food beacuse the iron can  spoils the food . so I,am advising every to use tin can

  • -5

when stored in the iron can, the acid content in the food reacts with the iron and spoils the food. while the tin can doesnot spoil the food.

  • -5

Since iron is more reactive than tin so it can reacts with the acids present in food so   tin cans are used to store food instead of iron cans.

Give me thumbs up.

 because iron gets rusted very soon and thus spoils the food.

 Tin cans are not made entirely of tin, and the name "tin can" would be more accurate if it were "tinned can". The can is actually made of steel, plated on the outside with tin. The steel gives the can strength, and the tin plating helps to protect the steel from rusting. As your question indicates, there are situations in which the tin is not entirely successful in preventing rust.

Aluminum cans are more naturally resistant to corrosion, and are also more easily made, because aluminum is more easily formed into a can than steel is.

 

best of luck for exams!!!

when stored in the iron can, the acid content in the food reacts with the  iron and spoil the food. while the tin does not spoils the food and it does not react with the food containing acid. Example:- Pickles(achaar) are stored in tin can because pickle contains acid which can react with iron

Iron gets rusted easily by the reaction of Water and Iron Oxide.This reaction is harmful if its particles are taken  by mistake by humans while eating it will lead to various diseases. That is why tin cans are more suitable for storing food.

Tin cans, used for storing food, are made by electroplating tin onto iron. Tin is less reactive than iron. Thus, food does not come into contact with iron and is protected from getting spoilt.

Because we know that iron is more reactive than tin and food contain organic acid so it is easily react with iron and produce poisonous metallic salt which is dangerous for human consumption that cause tin are used to store food instead of iron van

Tin does not corrode like iron and evenly does not react with acids like iron. So it helps in storage for long time...
