What is the Reaction Between Copper Oxide and Sulphuric Acid?

Reacting Copper Oxide with Sulphuric Acid

Mixing copper oxide and sulphuric acid is an experiment involving an insoluble metal oxide which is reacted with a dilute acid to form a soluble salt. Copper (II) oxide, is a black solid, which, when reacted with sulphuric acid creates a cyan-blue coloured chemical called copper II sulfate. Copper (II) oxide reacts with sulfuric acid to create water and copper (II) sulfate. This reaction could be classified as a double displacement reaction or a neutralization reaction.

Writing the Equation form of  Copper oxide + Sulphuric Acid

This chemical reaction can be written as the following:

CuO +H2SO4 -> CuSO4 + H2O

Copper oxide(solid) + Sulphuric Acid (aqueous)-> Copper Sulphate (aqueous)+ Water(liquid) To find out how you can make Copper Sulphate at home check out this article.
