Copper Research.

Extracts from this document...


Copper Research * Some possible uses for copper are for money, roofing sheets, roofing tiles, flashing strips, gutters, downspouts, cupolas, vents, hand rails, light fixtures and signs are available in copper. In order to get a profit I would try to sell my copper to a good company. * I would try to sell my copper for as much I can sell in order to make a profit. It might get us more experience because if we do business with the right people we make a profit and get experience. * Ore malachite is like a green mineral. This is a carbonate like Azurite. Researching Copper Electrics and Electronics In practical terms, copper is indispensable, not only in a multiplicity of functions in the world around us, but to our basic health, as it is a vital trace element in our daily diet, helping to ensure the health of body and brain. ...read more.


The ever-changing patina is an integral feature of the appearance of a building as it weathers, the original copper glow gradually changing to a succession of warm brown tones before reaching the final distinctive green.

0.08 labour 10.00 per hour 3 people for 2 hours �60 Evaluation The experiment went wrong because we separated it the wrong way. The way we can change and make it better we can get a more precise heating then use them as much more. Also the experiment went wrong because the calculations fo the temperature didn't turn as planned. We could have tried to improve it by making the temperature and using a more careful way to separate the metals. We used the equipment in the wrong way we should have been more careful and try to do the experiment the right way in order to get better results. Balance equation Copper carbonate ==> carbon oxide ==> carbon dioxide Thermal decomposition Cu Co3 CuO Co2 In this reaction we used a lot of heat to make the chemical react Copper oxide + carbon ==> carbon dioxide + copper Displacement decomposition 2CuO C Co2 2Cu We used a lot of heat.

    This problem could be overcome by brazing the two components or using caphead screws or nuts and studs if a temporary fixture was preferred. Because the handle is so big it too will be very heavy, this means that the spring beneath the punch will need to be very strong


    The overall excellent property profile of Nylons results in their probably having the most diverse range of applications of all thermoplastic polymers. TYPICAL NYLON The current commercial Nylon homopolymers and others that have received attention as candidate Nylon plastics are summarized in (table 1-2): Table 1-2: Commercial and conjectured Nylon plastics homopolymer.

  1. My aim of this experiment is to recognize which material is the greatest sound ...

    this means the sound waves will not be able to easily travel through the material. As the layers are added on to the existing layer right up to the third layer I deem that the amount of sound will vastly decrease each time, as the sound will become more and

  2. Investigation into the physical properties of glass.

    I know that when you give electrons energy they go up an orbit, that is the absorption of the light, I think that the light is re-emitted when the electron goes down a level. Adding lead to the glass obviously changes the speed of light, making it slow down.

  1. Technology Evaluation

    This was a very big set back as I made the joints, but they did not fit as one piece of wood was larger than the other, if I had made them to fit there would have been a massive gap and this would have made it very difficult to
