the Properties of Copper? Definition of Copper
What is the definition of
Copper? It is a ductile, malleable, reddish-brown metallic
element that is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity and is widely
used for electrical wiring, water piping, and corrosion-resistant parts, either
pure or in alloys such as brass and bronze. The
Chemical Properties are the
characteristics of a substance, like Copper, which distinguishes it from any
other substance. Most common substances, like Copper, exist as
States of Matter as solids, liquids, gases and plasma. Refer to the article on
Copper for additional information and facts about this substance.
- What are the Physical Properties of Copper?
What are the Physical
Properties of Copper? The Physical properties of Copper are the characteristics
that can be observed without changing the substance into another
substance. Physical properties are usually those that can be observed using our
senses such as color, luster, freezing point, boiling point, melting point, density, hardness and odor. The Physical Properties of Copper are as follows:
What are the Physical Properties of Copper?
Capable of being shaped or bent
Easily pulled or stretched into a thin wire
||Has a shine or glow
Excellent transmission of heat or electricity
Copper Properties - What are the Chemical Properties of Copper?
What are the Chemical
Properties of Copper? They are the characteristics that
determine how it will react with other substances or change from
one substance to another. The better we know the nature of the substance the
better we are able to understand it. Chemical properties are only observable during a
chemical reaction. Reactions to substances may be brought
about by changes brought about by burning, rusting, heating, exploding, tarnishing
etc. The Chemical
Properties of Copper are as follows:
What are the Chemical Properties of Copper?
||Poisonous in large amounts
Reactivity with water
It does not react with water
||Readily combines with water
and carbon dioxide producing hydrated copper carbonate
||Corrodes when exposed to
