Homework Help: Word and skeletal equations

  1. Dec 3, 2006 #1
    I was wondering if somebody could check these questions for me:

    1. To get cupric hyroxide and cupric carbonate you coerce copper, water, carbon dioxide and oxygen reacting.

    Word : copper + water + carbon dioxide + oxygen -----> cupric hydroxide +
    cupric carbonate

    Skeletal: Cu + H20 + CO2 + O2 ------> OH3 + CO3

    I'm not really sure how to do the bolded ones.

    Can someone tell me which parts I got right?

    The RHS should be [tex] Cu(OH)_{2}+ CuCO_{3} [/tex]

    CuPROUS= Cu(I)

    CuPRIC=Cu(II)
