"Cupric Nitrate"

Cuprous Oxide, Cu2O reacts with dilute Nitric Acid, HNO3, in the cold
to form a solution of Cupric Nitrate, Cu(NO3)2, and Copper, Cu.

	Cu2O  +  2 HNO3   ==>   Cu(NO3)2   +   Cu   +   H2O

The compound is called Cupric Nitrate ( Cupric, because of the +2
oxidation state of Copper in this compund.... it would have been
Cuprous Nitrate had it been Cu(NO3) wherein Copper exhibits the +1
oxidation state ). Since Cuprous Nitrate is not very common, hence the
name Copper Nitrate for this compound is also justified.
