Introduction

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.

Conclusion

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.

  1. TENSILE TESTING OF METALS

    Duralmin`s properties mean that it is very suitable to be used for aeroplanes because of its high tensile strength and high breaking strength. And is likely to be of the same characteristics to that of our sample U.

  2. Technology Evaluation

    So then I had to change the size of the abacas, so this meant that the letters that I put on had to be a lot smaller and the child, would not see the letters whilst playing with the toy, so I changed the colour of the lettering to black

  1. EFFECT OF MOISTURE ON THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF NYLON

    by sharing the attraction of the molecules somewhat reducing polarity and the available space for moisture molecules. Another area where moisture has significant effects on Nylons is in processing. Heated to molding temperatures while wet (i.e. >0.2 % water) will result in hydrolytic degradation and a significant loss of physical properties.

  2. Critically discuss the importance of materiality for theories of practical reasoning.

    Before we investigate its significance apart from our basic biological needs and in terms of our practical reasoning, a second important feature must be added to the brute significance of materiality as a constraint of necessity: Its recurrence. Simply, meeting our material needs is not a question of meeting
