What Happens When Copper Is Heated?

Answer

When copper carbonate is heated it decomposes. It evolves carbon dioxide gas and it leaves a black residue of copper oxide. Copper carbonate is normally a green powder and it changes in mass as it gives out carbon dioxide gas. The type of change is permanent.
