Is it valid to say that if all the conditions for an event E to happen will happen if all the conditions favorable for it to happens namely n1,n2,n3.... are present & all the factors which may hinder the progress or stop event E altogether are absent?
For example, consider the following definition of corrosion:
Corrosion can be defined as the deterioration of material by reaction to its environment. The corrosion occurs because of the natural tendency for most metals to return to their natural state; e.g., iron in the presence of moist air will revert to its natural state, iron oxide. Metals can be corroded by the direct reaction of the metal to a chemical; e.g., zinc will react with dilute sulfuric acid, and magnesium will react with alcohols
Is it valid to say that if all the factors which favors corrosion like moisture for example are present, then corrosion will definitely happen? How?
Further, if we a consider an infinite number of identical systems all of which have all the conditions required for corrosion, is it logically valid to say that all the materials in each system undergo corrosion and will they all undergo corrosion to the same extent? Please explain.
Thanks in advance
