Chemical process

  1. Feb 22, 2009 #1
    i m rubbish at chemsitry, so can someone explain this process, especially what the final thing would be?

    Copper sheet > rinsed in a bath of nitric acid > violently oxidized by dipping into a solution of copper sulphate dissolved in sulfuric and hydrochloric acids

    i read it in a book...on purpose withholding the results so someone can shed some light on it and i ll confirm it from the results in the book

    i think the rinsing in the nitric acid is to clean the copper sheet (not sure tho) and completely clueless about the second stage

    thanks in advance
