In question (a) I wrote the answer in a flow chart manner like ore —>concentration of ore —>carbonates—>calcination—>oxide of ore—>reduction—>purification of impure metal by electrolytic refining. Will I get full marks for this question ?? Plzzz tell:
(a) Write the steps involved in the extraction of pure metals in the middle of the activity series from their carbonate ores.
(b) How is copper extracted from its sulphide ore ? Explain the various steps supported by chemical equations. Draw labelled diagram for the electrolytic refining of copper.
