# Equation for copper nitrate

What are the names of the oxide and acid you use to create copper nitrate?

It is much eas­i­er to dis­solve metal­lic cop­per ox­ide and cop­per hy­drox­ide in a con­cen­trat­ed so­lu­tion of ni­tric acid HNO3. The equa­tions of these re­ac­tions look as fol­lows:Cu + 4HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + 2NO2 + 2H2OCuO + 2HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + 2H2OCu(OH)2 + 2HNO3 = Cu(NO3)2 + 2H2OAn­hy­drous cop­per ni­trate Cu(NO3)2can be ob­tained by car­ry­ing out a re­ac­tion of met­al cop­per with tetraox­ide ni­trate (con­di­tions for car­ry­ing out the re­ac­tion – at a tem­per­a­ture of 80 °C and in ethyl ac­etate):Cu + N2O4= Cu(NO3)2 + 2NO

Hi at8745, The formula for copper nitrate is: Cu(NO3)2Copper nitrate is formed from Nitric Acid (HNO3) and Copper (Cu) in this reaction:Cu + 4HNO3 --> Cu(NO3)2 + 2H20 + 2NO2Hope this helps :)

Cu + 4HNO3 ------> Cu(NO3)2 + 2H2O + 2NO2 when we put copper rod into conc. Nitric Acid a blue colour liquid substance will form that is Copper Nitrate and a reddish-brown Gas will extracted out that is Nitrogen Dioxide and water will also occur

Calcium nitrate and copper sulfate are recommended!You could use copper oxide and nitric acid but it is very unfavourable as a reaction!
