Textbook Problem

A copper-colored metal is found to conduct an electric current. Can you say with certainty that it is copper? Why or Why not? Suggest additional information that could provide unequivocal confirmation that it is copper.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The certainty that a copper-colored metal is copper has to be predicted.

Concept introduction:

Density:

Density can be defined as property that links mass of an object to its volume.  It derived quantity and its unit is gml-1 for liquids and gcm-3 for solid.  The density of material can be calculated with the help of formula,

  Density=Mass(g)Volume(mlorcm3)

Explanation

If the density of the unknown metal is 8.96 g/cm3 then the metal is copper
