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.

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

    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

    Here is a diagram which illustrates this: I believe that Polystyrene is going to be the best insulator of sound as its molecules are extremely close and also because it is a superb insulator of both sound and heat. Polythene: Looking at my next insulating material which I will be

  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

    In terms of time-electricity and any other things it cost �2.50 and in terms of energy, which includes all the labour costs it was �5.00. This adds up to a total cost of �15.00 to make the finished product. All this is totalled to �15.00 which all includes the water cost and the labour cost.

  2. Thermal Conductivity.

    Record the time for each of the sample materials do it three times for accurateness, and then take the average. Result The results are as follows: Material Test 1 time(mins/secs) Test 2 time(mins/secs) Test 3 time(mins/secs) Average time(mins/secs) Copper 50s 48s 51s Brass 1m10s 1m07s 1m15s Glass 12m11s 13m21s

  1. In this investigation I aim to find out which materials are the best insulators. ...

    I predict that these factors will effect the efficiency of the material. � Colour � Thickness � Density The lighter the material in colour the better insulator it will be. I predict this because light colours are poor radiators, therefore they will reflect the heat back into the copper beaker.


    This is due to the fact that ductile materials other than steel typically do not have a well defined yield point. For these materials the yield strength is typically defined by the 0.2% offset strain. The yield strength at 0.2% offset is determined by finding the intersection of the stress
