Why is copper oxide a base but not an alkali?

Copper oxide is unsoluble in water. A requirement for an alkali is: a soluble base. So copper oxide is a base but not an alkali.

Is copper oxide a salt?

No. A salt is a product of a neutralization reaction between an acid and a base, or an acid and a metal, or an acid and a metal carbonate. example: HCl+NaOH--->H2O+NaCl copper oxide is created by adding oxygen into copper and heating. Not a neutralization reaction, therefore not a salt.

What is the balanced equation for the reaction of sulphuric acid and copper oxide?

This will depend upon which version of copper oxide you have - copper I oxide or copper II oxide. For copper I oxide: H2SO4 + Cu2O --> Cu2SO4 + H2O For copper II oxide: H2SO4 + CuO --> CuSO4 + H2O

Copper oxide plus sulphuric acid?

That makes a reaction beteween an base and an acid. The chemical reaction is: CuO + H2SO4 → CuSO4 + H2O

How do you separate black copper oxide from a mixture of copper oxide and zinc oxide?

Copper oxide is metallic oxide. Metallic oxides are basic and can react with acids. Zinc oxide is an amphoteric oxide. Amphoteric oxide can react with acids as well as base. In order to separate copper oxide from zinc oxide, add sodium hydroxide solution to the mixture. Zinc oxide being amphoteric will react with NaOH to form Na22+[Zn(OH)4]2- whereas copper oxide will remain undissolved. Zinc oxide can be recovered from the solution adding acid to it.

The ionic equation for a reaction between hydrochloric acid and copper oxide is: 2H+ + O2- -> H2O
