Page history last edited by Copper 7 years, 9 months ago

These are solid copper pieces traded in as money a long time ago.

Quote:

Apparently the reason that policeman are nickname "cops" because they wore copper buttons.

 

Status update:

Yesterday, zinc and I visited the bronze garden.

Today, tin and I made some brass instruments.

Tomorrow, nitrogen and I are going to make copper nitride.  


Overview:

I am strong and easy to shape. I will sink in water because my density is 8.92.g/cc. I am combined with zinc to make bronze and tin to make brass. I am an excellent conductor and used in wires.

 

Information:  

Relationship: I am married to zinc to make bronze and brass.

 

Parent: I am an orphan. Ancient civilizations started using me for military.

 

network: metal

 

valence electrons: 1 electron

 

reactivity: I don't react with anyone. I just am mixed into alloys with zinc and tin.


Address: I am in the transtion metals and I am number 29.

 
state of matter: I am found in a solid state.  

Birthday: I don't know when my birthday, but I was discovered approxiametly 10,000 years ago.

 

Hometown: Nobody knows where I came from, but many civlizations started using me.

 

Group: I am a transtion metal.

 
Activities & Interests:

I am orangy and golden with my boiling point being 2,567 dgrees Celsius. I am a very good conductor and used in wires.

I am highly malleable and ductile. I become brittle near melting point. I am also found in coins and currencies all over the

world like pennies. I make brass and bronze with my alloys. I have even been used in ancient weapons.

 


Places:

I am found and mined in the United States.

I am mined in India.

Your composition in the penny has changed over the years. What year did you make a big change? Why this change?

Copper said

at 3:21 pm on Nov 3, 2012

I changed my composition in pennies in 1892. Before pennies were 95% copper and 5% percent zinc or tin>
Now, pennies 2.5% copper and 97.5% zinc.

Why aren't you reactive?!?!?!?!?!

Copper said

at 6:58 pm on Nov 2, 2012

I am a transtion metal and most transition metals are not reactive although they are good conductors of electricity.

Hi. What number are you on the periodic table?

Copper said

What are some of your compounds?

wow, you're not reactive to any element..
that's really interesting. so you're mixed to make alloy?
awesome. it's really cool to be mixed and be part of coins too.
