No, only ferrous metals like iron and steel rust.Nickels are made of 75% copper and 25% nickel, and copper can oxidize to form a green patina (not called rust, ......It is very resistant to corrosion. nickle is used in many different places, because of its ability to resist corrosion. Like most metals, nickel can rust when exposed to excessive water or moisture for long time periods. good-day !

### There are 2 times as many dimes as nickels, and the value of the dimes is \$1.65 more than the value of the nickels. How many nickels and dimes are there.

There are a couple of ways to figure it out, one uses algebra (ugh), the other a bit of multiplication. I choose multiplication.

Fact: Since there are twice as many dimes as nickels, we can deduce that for every two dimes there is one nickel. Thus, if we start with two dimes and one nickel, we can see that there is a difference of fifteen cents in value. Knowing that for every two dimes and one nickel we add we will increase the difference by fifteen cents, we need only divide the difference (1.65) by fifteen and that is the multiplier we need to get the proper number of coins.

165 divided by 15 = 11.
So, two dimes times 11 = 22 domes or \$2.20.
One nickel times 11 = 11 nickels or \$0.55.
Note there are twice as many dimes as nickels.
Note that \$2.20 minus \$0.55 -= \$1.65.

### Should my blade have started to rust as I thought they were stainless steel?

Stainless steel does rust... titanium doesn't. You should wash and promptly dry the cutter blades with a cloth after each use to prevent rust which will dull the blades must faster. (Pleasure boats use stainless steel bolts and fittings throughout, and they are always slightly corroded.)

### Is CLR safe on brushed nickel

Most descalers or delimers are tough on chrome/nickel. I believe the CLR formula does not attack chrome/nickel.

### My water pressure drops when I turn temperature to hot. And the temperature changes throughout the shower. What could casue this?

Hi! The problem may be the pressure balance cartridge needs replacing. I have seen trash (small rocks -a piece solder-Teflon tape-rust from pipes) cause this problem, but you will have to remove the the cartridge to find out.

### The car overheated today, and the mechanic said he found a large amount of mud in the radiator and hoses. What would cause this? Thanks!

That "mud" is actually rust. Back in the early eighties the EPA began mandating more and more MPG. Quickest and easiest way to begin doing that is to cut down on the vehicle weight. Engine block and cylinder head castings were made thinner and the use of nickel (which is heavier than steel or iron) in the alloy they are cast from was cut back. Nickel acts as a rust inhibitor and also helps as a "binding agent",
(without that nickel in there, blocks rust easily, reacting to the acid buildup as antifreeze deteriorates. Blocks and heads are also more prone to cracking as the nickel is very important, helping hold the iron together on a molecular level.
Flush the block really well, have the radiator flushed separately or it will plug up worse. I have seen some engines that were so badly rusted that the welch plugs needed to be removed to let the rust out. Or, replace it altogether.
Best thing you can do is change the antifreeze and do a simple water flush at least every two years.
If you don't you will be right back in the shop doing this same repair again!
OK, class dismissed!
Good luck!!

### Why is my stainless steel ducane grill rusting out so rapidly

There are two basic types of stainless steel; -highly corrosion resistant/nickel-chromium steels and less corosion resitant ferritic and martensitic steels. Basicly the less nickel in the mix lowers the price to the consumer and makes great products cost effective to the consumer. You need to "pacify" the surface to mitigate the condition.

Use DeBruce Polish to remove the rust and "pacify" the surface. This is a great product is ECO-FRIENDLY just another reason we like and use professionally. You can find DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.

### Bolt hangs up

Likely both. Spray liberally with rust penetrator. After it dries out some, spraying white lithium grease in it would make the lubrication last much longer.
