How Grease Protects Against Corrosion
I have been set a task by my chemistry teacher to find out why grease protects bicycle chains, etc.
Please help me!Emily

I'm sure your chemistry teacher knows the answer, Emily, and s/he is only encouraging you to research the subject. Did your teacher specify whether you are supposed to be looking into wear, and the use of grease as an anti-friction agent, vs. whether you are supposed to be looking at grease as a rust preventative? The first step in you project is to make sure you very clearly understand the question.
