In the paper, the initial velocity of corrosion of mild steel insulphuric acid is studied by colorimetric analysis. The kinetic expression,r.= K.e~(BC), is derived from the relationship between initial velocity andconcentration. Replacing the rate constant K by Arrhenius equation,K= A·e~(-E/R),we get r_0=A·e~(BC)·e~(-E/(RT)).All parameters in this kinetic expression is obtained by experimentalmethods.
