However, if exposed to air....
is CuO amphoteric ? i see some covalent oxides such as BeO , Al2O3 and ZnO are amphoteric and they react with acid to give metal ions and water but i don't know if CuO behaves the samethe reaction is like BeO + 2H+ > Be2+ + H2Oby the way , i m from Hong Kong too , are u A Level student ?

btw, can we say that the CuO is basic, and thus neutralization occurs?because a book tells me that the metals will increase the properties of being a base across the periodic tabe (from right to left) if become oxidesis that true?
how about the mechanism ? does the negative O oxide ion attack the H on H2O to give OH- ?
