10 lb Copper Bar / Block (Provident Metals)

10 lb Copper Bar / Block (Provident Metals)


So recently I bought a 10 pound copper
block and you can see how large it is by the
pennies in front of it. Pretty substantial its point 999 fine the copper so I take that to be
almost pure copper. And here you can see a banana next to it
to give you a little bit of scale. So I paid about sixty dollars for this
block of copper, that was delivered, so it’s about twice
what the going rate for copper is per pound. But I was really drawn to
the presentation, I’m a chemist, and I like the periodic table treatment with the atomic number and atomic mass and also has a melting point and the
density. So here just to give you an idea of how heavy this is a drop it from
about eight inches onto this banana. Here and you can see
that it really had pretty much no problem
smashing in the banana flat. So there you have it
that’s the ten-pound block of copper it makes a
really good paperweight and who knows maybe I can trade for food
after the apocalypse. This is Dr. B and thanks for
watching.

  2. Dear DR , i am a curious student .
    i need to make copper metal should attract rice from a small distance when the copper metal attracts rice it should go black .
    and if you bring needle or staple pin near to it should repulse , if you bring a BULB torch close to this copper metal , bulb will become dimmed . if you take that copper metal near to a TV it should emit a radiation the program reception is seen to be disturbed causing static-like sounds, diffusion of image and formation of lines across the screen
    NOW TELL ME DR WHICH CHEMICAL I SHOULD APPLY ON COPPER , OR HOW DO I MAKE THIS TO COPPER METAL BY USING CHEMICAL .
    THANKS DR

  3. Trade a 10 pound copper block/brick for food….hm well he paid 60 bucks for it, if i need food i trade in just 1 gram of gold for a good amount of food and its a win win. paid only 55 bucks 🙂

  4. I think it would be neat to collect several different types of blocks. Imagine a row of different elemental blocks. I would go for something like that.
