The thermal decomposition in this case is: CuCO3 -------------CuO + CO2

Here are the equations for the thermal decomposition of copper carbonate (notice that a metal oxide is formed, just as it was with calcium carbonate): Copper carbonate &rarr; copper oxide + carbon dioxide CuCO3 &rarr; CuO + CO2

Word equation:copper (II) carbonate --> copper oxide + carbon dioxideSymbol equation:CuCO3 --> CuO +CO2

Three reaction steps: CuCO3 --&gt; CuO + CO2 4CuO --&gt; 2Cu2O + O2 2Cu2O --&gt; 4Cu + O2

Copper Carbonate when heated decomposes to give copper oxide and carbon dioxide.

It decomposes to form copper oxide and carbon dioxide. It is an endothermic reaction, which means it absorbs heat (as all decomposition reactions do). This is the chemical equation of the reaction: CuCO3 ----&gt; CuO + CO2

Heating calcium carbonate sufficiently causes the following reaction: CaCO3 -&gt; CaO + CO2.

Because the Copper Carbonate turns to Copper II Oxide with the evolution of carbon dioxide. The Copper Oxide is black.

when copper carbonate is heated,it changes from a green to a black powder.carbondioxide gas is given off.

When calcium carbonate is heated, it breaks down by thermal decomposition to carbon dioxide &amp; calcium oxide (quicklime). Here is the word equation: Calcium carbonate --&gt; Calcium oxide + Carbon dioxide Here is the chemical equation: CaCO3 (s) --&gt; CaO (s) + CO2 (g)

They form magnesium oxide, copper oxide etc. and will form carbon dioxide as a byproduct.

when carbonate is heated lyperdermus thiosulfate kindogranite maglesemium magnesium gindopickranate is formed.

Carbonate by itself is an ion that does not contain copper and therefore could not produce copper if heated. However, because carbonate is a negatively charged ion, no substantial number of carbonate ions can exist stably except in association with an equal number of positively charged cations to neutralize the electrical charge of the carbonate ions. If these cations are cations of copper, then copper oxide can be produced by heating the copper carbonate salt.

It is possible for carbon dioxide and copper oxide to encourage a reaction to take place due to thermal composition. When calcium carbonate is heated, it decomposes and generates carbon dioxide and copper oxide.

yes it does the carbon dioxide is supposed to be heated up copper carbonate

They both release carbon dioxide,but at different temperatures

Basically Heated Copper carbonate will turn 'Black"' as it forms CuO and will give off black(ish) smoke, the chemical solution for this isCuCO3 ----> CuO + CO2So therefore heating copper Carbonate is a Chemical Change, because it is unable to be reversed.
