Problem

In 1973 the wreckage of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor was discovered near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. [The Monitor and the CSS Virginia (formerly the USS Merrimack) fought the first battle between iron-armored ships.] In 1987 investigations were begun to see if the ship could be salvaged. It was reported in Time (June 22, 1987) that scientists were considering adding sacrificial anodes of zinc to the rapidly corroding metal hull of the Monitor. Describe how attaching zinc to the hull would protect the Monitor from further corrosion.
