1.what is database Testing?
2.What is the role of a tester in database testing?Is it just querying the database.
3.If so then how to prepare the test cases for it?Should we copy and paste the queries in the manual test cases prepared for web applications.Thanks in advance!

Ask yourself first, what is a database and what would I want to test about it? Are you concerned with configuration, structure, performance, data typing, data conversion, stored procedures, interfaces to the database, connectivity, security, data redundancy and disaster recovery, ...
The list goes on.
Presumably, someone else has asked that you explore this topic. I suggest you refer back to them for more specific direction and objectives.
