just get red power 2 industrialcraft 2 and buildcraft they all give copper and tin which are the same in the ore library so you really need 1 of the mods giving those ores (configurable).
the following uses for copper are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. i would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.. wire; coinage metal; copper compounds such as fehling's solution are widely used in analytical chemistry in tests for sugar
another industry that is heavily reliant on the element is telecommunications. finely twisted copper wires are used in adsl and hdsl wiring for local area network (lan) internet lines. unshielded twisted pair (utp) lines contain eight color-coded conductors which are constructed of four pairs of thin copper wires.
copper beads have been excavated in northern iraq and which are more than ten thousand years old and presumably made from native copper nuggets of which can sometimes be found. copper was widely used in the ancient world as bronze its alloy with tin which was used to make cutlery coins and tools. in china it was used for bells.
archaeological evidence suggests that people have been using copper for at least 11000 years. relatively easy to mine and refine people discovered methods for extracting copper from its ores at least 7000 years ago. the roman empire obtained most of its copper from the island of cyprus which is where copper's name originated.
of all the metals copper is the one most likely to be found in its native state often released by the chemical reaction of its ores. although only small amounts of native copper can be found there was enough of it for our ancestors to discover the metal and begin using it. copper has been used by humans for as many as ten thousand years.
the two most familiar alloys of copper are bronze and brass. bronze the first alloy created by people is a mix of copper that contains as much as 25% tin. early people used bronze to make tools weaponry containers and ornamental items. brass a mix of copper that contains between 5% and 45% zinc was first used about 2500 years ago.
since it was first used in 8000 b.c people have discovered different uses of copper. tools made of this element helped advance civilization during the stone age. since that time it has become an integral part of many industries. architectural applications copper is heavily employed in the construction industry. it is commonly found in buildings because it is waterproof.
copper surfaces exposed to air gradually tarnish to a dull brownish color. if water and air are present copper will slowly corrode to form the carbonate verdigris often seen on roofs and statues. uses of copper. as a result of its excellent electrical conductivity copper’s most common use is in electrical equipment such as wiring and motors.
most copper occurs in ores and must be smelted or extracted from its ore for purity before it can be used. but natural chemical reactions can sometimes release native copper according to the
