Experiment #4- The Copper Cycle Chemistry 111-506 Jennifer Ewers and Youngmin Kim (T.A.) Spring 2007 Introduction Copper is an important element to civilization and the economy. It is used in compounds by the electrical industry, as an algaecide, a fungicide, a seed dressing, found in ceramics and glassware and is found in a compound in fireworks. Copper is necessary for the healthy development of connective tissue, nerve coverings and bone. Copper can also be dangerous to our body in high concentrations. Because of its many used industrially, it is seen as a common pollutant. The copper cycle is a series of reactions that takes the copper from its elemental state to various compounds back to the elemental state. Materials and Methods To start the lab, we made a hood from a funnel, tubing and aspirator. We put .2531 grams of copper turnings into a 50 mL beaker and set it on the wire gauze above the Bunsen burner. We then acquired 5 mL of 6 mole HNO 3 . The solution was gently heated to speed up the reaction. The aspirator funnel/hood

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
