What would you like to do?
This should not even be a problem unless the angle is more than slight. Connect the two together and drop the PVC or put a PVC elbow in there .somewhere/

Answer No. What do you do when that connection fails? How do you get to it? You probably want to do the job with threaded fittings. Code probably insists on copp…er pipe totally within a structure.
I WOULD NOT I wouldn't I would use copper strictly The above is clearly opinion and not very helpful if you have existing PVC pipe or have an application which requires it…. Try searching on "PVC to copper adapter", you should find many to various adapters and should be able to find one to fit your application.
By using a Female or Male adapter. There are Female and Male in Copper and PVC. If you sweated a Female Adapter on the Copper and glued a Male Adapter on the PVC, you can now …join the two by screwing them together. That would depend if this is a drainage or pressure system as Mission couplings do make great couplings that go from schedule 40 PIPE to copper and the coupling can now act as a clean out
I've seen fittings for that situation in the plumbing section at home depot. Most hardware stores should have those fittings. I would be careful not to heat up the PVC too muc…h if you're soldering to the copper. You could use copperbond epoxy instead of soldering next to the PVC.
With a fitting called a hubless or no-hub fitting.
Yes and NO depending on what kind of piping system. for drain connections yes like tub drains or fixture traps but you need access to all slip/compression fittings. and NO you… can not use PVC to brass for like a discharge pipe on a waterheater PRV (pressure relief valve) or any hot water piping system
What is the right connection fitting for a 2 inch PVC shower drain and trap to a 2 inch copper drain pipe?
A fernco or rubber fitting. This made of rubber and had hose clamps on it. You should ask for assistance at a hardware or plumbing shop for a 2" Plastic X 2" Copper Fern…co or rubber coupling.
With a PVC x IPS adapter male or female depending on application
The volume of one foot of 3-inch PVC pipe is: 84.82 cubic inches. In terms of liquid, this equates to about 0.3672 (US) gallons or 47 fluid ounces for that section of pipe.
C x M adapter C x F adapter PVC x F adapter PVC x M adapter or Thread if your really using "pipe" in lieu of "tubing"
Sweat a female fitting on the copper or use a compression coupling between the two.
Normally you glue it together. Where it meets steel or copper, you use the proper fitting on the PVC to accept the steel or copper. For steel on the drain, a rubber connection… with hose clamps can also be used.
By lead wiping a brass nipple into the lead pipe and then using a F x PVC adapter to the male threads of the brass nipple.
Abs to PVC glue sold at home depot Color it aqua blue/green plumbers key term. GUMBY GLUE Depends upon what you mean by "black pipe". If you mean ABS drain pipe, there i…s glue for that. If you mean steel "black pipe", i.e., non-galvanized, then you would need a threaded connection adapted to the PVC (either a female PVC connector on a male black pipe or a male PVC connector into a female black pipe fitting). The secondary question would be, "Why would anyone want do to that?"
