How does the amount of Copper Carbonate effect the amount of Copper Oxide?

Extracts from this document...


Jamie Moir 11F 12/04/02 How does the amount of Copper Carbonate effect the amount of Copper Oxide. The Formula for the reaction is: Copper Carbonate Copper Oxide + Carbon Dioxide CuCO3 CuO + CO2 Atomic mass 124 80 + 44 Prediction My thesis is that if you increase the amount of Copper Carbonate, obviously you will have more Copper Oxide produced. My Calculation for working out how much Copper oxide is produced. ...read more.


These are Copper (63), Carbon (12) and 3 atoms of oxygen ( 3x 16 ). Then take the atomic mass of the product you want, which is copper oxide with an atomic mass of 80. Then divide the atomic mass of your starting product by the atomic mass of the product you want. Then times your answer by how many grams of copper carbonate you started off with. ...read more.


We will repeat this 3 times for each weight and then take the average. I will then record my results into a table. Fair testing To help make sure that it is a fair test we will repeat the experiment 3 times and take the average. I will use different test tubes every time and I will weigh out the copper carbonate correctly. I will use the same Bunsen Burner on the exact same heat.

    It would also be important to consider the stability of CuCO3 with respect to both oxides, to see which reaction is energetically most likely. So it is clear that the value of ?Hf suggests that Cu2O will be formed, but that this will not necessarily be the case because of the other factors involved.

  1. Relationship Between the Masses of Copper Carbonate and Copper Oxide

    In total we will be conducting 6 experiments, and for each new experiment we will increase the amount of copper carbonate heated by 5g. Each portion of copper carbonate must be weighed correctly for it to be a fair test.
