Copper Element in Periodic Table | Atomic Number Atomic Mass


Copper Element:

Copper is a chemical element and it is a member of group 11 and period 4 in the periodic table. The atomic number of copper is 29 and it is indicated by the symbol Cu. Cu is a soft, malleable and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. It is one of a few metallic elements with natural Color other than gray or silver.  63Cu and 65Cu are the stable isotopes of copper.

Uses of Copper Element:

  • Cu is used to make coins, along with silver and gold.
  • Cu sulphate is used as an agricultural poison and as an algicide in water purification.
  • Cu compounds are used in chemical tests for sugar detection.
  • It is also used in guttering, roofing and as rainspouts on buildings.
  • Copper is used in plumbing and in cookware and cooking utensils.
