Caption: Copper oxidation experiment. Image 1 of 3. Copper sheet before heating in a flame. When heated, the reddish coloured metal copper reacts with the oxygen in the air to form copper oxide (black). The equation for the reaction is: 2Cu + O2 => 2CuO. For a sequence showing the oxidation of copper, see images A500/712-714.
