Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Copper oxidation experiment. Image 2 of 3. Copper sheet being heated in a Bunsen burner 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.
