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.

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.

  1. Technology Evaluation

    equipment was hand saws; therefore it would have taken a lot longer. I had to change the material I was using because in school they never had any oak wood, so I had to use chip wood. I changed this due to the lack of materials available and therefore I


    Another dominant feature of Nylons is crystallinity. As with most crystalline polymers, the molecular chains are uncluttered by large substituent groups. They are flexible and regular in-group spacing and crystallize readily. As with acetals, this crystallinity is responsible for properties of wear resistance, chemical resistance, thermal resistance, and unfortunately, higher mold shrinkage.

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

    Polystyrene: Polystyrene is a strong plastic created from acetylene and benzine that can be injected, extruded or blow moulded, making it a very useful and versatile manufacturing material. Most of us recognize Styrofoam a form of foam polystyrene packaging. Polystyrene is also used as a building material, with electrical appliances (light switches and plates), and in other household items.

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

    so it follows that the very idea of human agency - contra the autonomous figure portrayed in the pre-social state of nature - is already deeply social in character. In one clear sense then, human lives are not separate at all, but connected, in the sense that any plan of

  1. Thermal Conductivity.

    So therefore my prediction is that copper will be the best thermal conductor. Method 1. Collect 1 clamp stand, 1 stopwatch, some jelly, one each sample material, 1 nail and a Bunsen burner. 2. Setup clamp stand, place one of the sample materials in the clamp and close in tightly.

  2. The task has been set to make a hole punch (used to punch holes ...

    In the picture above the two distances, A and B are not specified as certain lengths. However to make this relevant to my hole punch, distance A would be the distance from where the handle is joined to the pillar to where the handle leaves the pillar.

  1. Investigation into the physical properties of glass.

    I concluded that this was due to the differences in grades of glass. Where possible I used the most common values. Property Value Notes/Comments Density 2.5Kg/m2 (Per 1mm thickness) Young's modulus 70Gpa(N/mm2) (Giga Pascals) Compressive Strength 1000 Mpa (N/mm2) (Mega Pascals)

  2. Casing Research

    It comes in many colours and forms (e.g. Cast Acrylic). It is durable (10 times the impact resistance of glass), and therefore suitable for outdoor use. Acrylic's non-toxic properties make it safe to be used with food or made into a toy; however, in the unlikely event that it is broken, it will splinter and expose sharp points.
