What propities does copper have that make it suitable for use in plumbing?
plumbing i would pick copper because you want the metal that could bent ti make pipes and tanks and below hydrogen in the reactivity series so it doesn't rect with water copper is great for this. correct me if i'm wrong

Propitiate means to satisfy the demands of someone. Jesus Christ was the propitiation for our sins. God demanded perfection from humans. They could not give it, but Jesus Chri…st was able and He did. He paid the price and satisfied God's demands. the English answer is to mend mend it(apex)
all hardware stores sell adaptors to change from copper to plastic. You solder the adaptor to the copper pipe and attach the plastic pipe to this adapt…or using screw clamps to tighten the plastic pipe on the adaptor. To be honest. This answer seems like a bush plumbers answer. To be technically correct. In order for you to connect plastic piping to copper piping one fitting is used and it is called a conex fitting, otherwise called cxc fitting. It has a nut and ring on either side of the joint and this type of fitting can be used on either copper or plastic making it ideal. As you tighten the nut the ring inside tightens onto either the plastic or copper making a water tight connection. It is said above that soldering a copper joint and then attaching it to the plastic pipe is the way but in my experience if you try do that, the heat from the soldering will melt the plastic pipe. Take the safer route and more professional route and use conex fittings.
Copper is easy to use and work with. The minerals in water generally do not build up on copper as easily as on galvanized steel. After WWII copper was relatively cheap and ava…ilable in great quantities so the plumbing products industry changed to it as its standard pipe. Now copper is much more expensive and new materials such as plastics are being used. Copper does not rust or perish easily, making it ideal for use in any climate. Copper is also heat and cold resistant and swells and contracts much less than other materials when its temperature changes. Copper resists damage from minor home fires much better than plastic.
In general, the latest recommendations are to use PEX piping over copper even though copper has been the most popular solution for decades now. With the recent i…ncrease in copper values, the price of the job to do a full copper install can be much higher than PEX. Also, there are a number of thefts occurring where thieves will go into houses that are only occupied a few months out of the year and strip all of the copper plumbing in order to sell it. PEX plumbing has a lower cost, and is easier to install. In addition to all of these benefits it is also quieter, and does not expand and contract with the temperature like metal does.
In the last few decades, most plumbing in the UK has been installed with copper pipes. The word 'plumbing' comes from the Latin 'plumbum', meaning lead, which is what the Roma…ns used for plumbing.
Cars are complicated pieces of machinery that use a variety of materials, and automakers continually update their designs to incorporate different materials to help meet consu…mer needs. Over time, automakers have decreased their use of steel and opted for lighter materials. To answer your question, copper is not suitable for making car bodies because copper is not very strong and is a soft, malleable metal, unlike steel and other lighter materials which are very strong to make car bodies.
Copper pipes are now most commonly used in plumbing. Lead pipes were used long ago, and the word plumbing is derived from the Latin word for lead (plumbum). Iron pipes were us…ed until relatively inexpensive copper pipes became readily available during the twentieth century.
Copper is a suitable saucepan base because it is very thermally conductive, thus allowing efficient heat transfer between the pan and the burner. It is also resistant to oxida…tion, so that it maintains its conductivity instead of converting to less conductive salts.
because it is an assumption of having copper as being CHEAP!?
Because it lasts and is very versatile and can be used for a variety of plumbing applications with amazing results
Copper tubing is used for underground propane service lines but should be installed by a licensed propane company. See www.propane101.com/gasserviceline.htm for a better… explanation.
because their gods were angry and vengeful, the Vikings propitiated them with many sacrifices.

Unroll it and use as you would normal hard copper. Compression fittings or soldered fittings.
The plumb bob is useful in establishing vertical for a wall in construction or a doorjamb when hanging a door. It can indicate whether a flue is running true vertical or v…eering off plumb. A plumb-bob or a plummet is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, that is suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line, or plumb-line. It is essentially the vertical equivalent of a water level.

yes and no to make the bullet itself they use lead because it has a low melting point,it has some weight to it so when the bullet is fired the wind doesn't affect its accu…racy and because lead is easy to mold and cool down. they use the copper as a coating to make fullmetal jacket rounds (fullmetal jacket is when the entire bullet is coated with copper even the bottom of it)
