copper does not burn but hot metal is coated with black coloured layer of copper oxide.Why?
Asked by Pawan | 23rd Sep, 2014, 01:31: PM
At normal temperature, the surface of copper is covered with copper oxide. The thin layer of copper oxide is a protective cover which protects copper from further oxidation. Thus this copper oxide does not burn as it is already reacted with the oxygen in the air. No further oxidation can occur.

- i havea doubt in this equation which is likethis given below - i) Iron react with steam to form the metal oxide and hydrogen. 3Fe(s) + 4H2O(g) → Fe3O4(s) + 4H2(g) (1) why the there is Fe3O4 in the above equation and why not Fe2O3 (2)kindely explain me how we came to this equation (2)(a) What is the equation for the reaction of calcium and potassium in water? Calcium and potassium do not react with each other, but each decomposes water to make the relevant hydroxide with the release of hydrogen. Ca + 2H₂O → Ca(OH)₂ + H₂. 2K + 2H₂O → 2KOH + H₂.
