Galvanization is often applied to carbon steel. People worry that metals will corrode in seawater and liquids containing sodium chloride if exposed to these environments. It was feasible to compute the amount of mass lost as a result of carbon steel corroding in saltwater. If the weight of mild steel decreases, this may impact the pace of corrosion and the effectiveness of any countermeasures. When there is a higher concentration of amino benzoic acid, both the rate of corrosion prevention and the overall efficiency of the process drop proportionally. Increasing the concentration of the inhibitor solution causes the creation of a barrier on the surface of the carbon steel, which reduces the quantity of the material's active site. Finding a solution to the corrosive process is one of the primary objectives of electrochemistry research. Electrochemical research has shown that carbon steel has a protective covering on its surface. Utilizing both the FTIR and the SEM, the surface layer of the carbon steel was analysed. Utilizing a technique known as atomic force microscopy, it is possible to evaluate the surface roughness of carbon
