  • Carbon Dioxide

    Carbon dioxide is the main pollutant that warms our planet Earth. Living things produce carbon dioxide when they breathe. However‚ carbon dioxide is considered to be a harmful pollutant when linked with any vehicle‚ trains‚ power plants‚ as well as other various human activities that involve burning fossil fuels such as gasoline and natural gas. Studies have shown that In the past 150 years‚ such activities have released enough carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to raise its levels higher than they

    ASSIGNMENT 1 KHANH NGUYEN 1001974 THE NATURAL CARBON CYCLE Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the biogeochemical cycles which the fourth most common elements on Earth. It is also a basis of all life and continually cycled and globally existed. Carbon dioxide is obtained from various sources‚ including emissions from volcanoes or industries and combustion products of organic compounds and the respiratory activity of living organisms. Carbon dioxide not only going into the atmosphere through the burning

    Crystal Lewis 9/21/10 Period 1 Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide is the infrastructure of all life on earth. Every human being and animal needs it to survive‚ making it an essential compound. In order to survive‚ humans and animals must give off carbon dioxide to take in oxygen‚ whereas plants must take in the compound and give off oxygen. Carbon Dioxide has numerous unique characteristics‚ properties‚ and safety measures that everyone should be aware of. Being aware of this compound and what it

  • Carbon Dioxide

    Carbon Dioxide is a colorless‚ odorless gas that occurs in small quantities in the earth’s atmosphere naturally. The earth’s ocean‚ soil‚ plants and animals release CO2. The formula of Carbon Dioxide is CO2. The CO2 molecule contains 2 oxygen atoms that each share 2 electrons with a carbon atom to form 2 carbon - oxygen double bonds. The atoms are arranged as so (OHT). This is called a ’linear molecule’. Carbon dioxide is commonly found as a gas and is never a liquid. It sublimes to

    Carbon Dioxide from Cars U.S. states are beginning to attack another major source of global warming pollution besides power plants: your car. David Biello reports Cars in California offer a new kind of sticker shock this year: carbon. In addition to the familiar smog ratings‚ labels on new Cali cars rank them 1 to 10 based on greenhouse gas emissions. The best‚ a perfect 10‚ will emit less than 200 grams of greenhouse gases per mile. The bad ones more than 520. Vermont will also begin offering

  • Carbon Dioxide and Organisms

    Carbon dioxide is both a vital requirement for producers – the first organisms in any food chain‚ and at times a dangerous waste product. Where plants use carbon dioxide during the Calvin cycle of photosynthesis‚ at night they also produce small quantities due to respiration. Fundamentally‚ carbon dioxide reacts with ribulose bisphosphate to produce glycerate 3-phosphate in the light independent reaction. In turn glycerate3-phosphate is reduced to triose phosphate using reduced NADP

    a) Describe the physico-chemical qualities of water that are important to aquaculturists. Aquaculture can be defined as the high-density production of fish‚ shellfish and plant forms in a controlled environment. Stocking rates for high-density aquaculture are typically thousand fold greater than wild environments. Modern fish culturists employ both open and close systems to raise fish. Open systems‚ such as‚ the raceways are characterized by rapid turnover of water. Closed systems are commonplace

  • Carbon Dioxide and Trees

    menial task. But the truth is; every tree makes a difference. One of the great functions each tree offers‚ besides its aesthetic addition‚ is the sequestering of CO2‚ carbon dioxide. To elaborate this importance‚ it is fair to paint the big picture. Heat is trapped in the earth’s atmosphere due to high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat trapping gases which ultimately prohibit the heat from being released into space. This is what has caused the virulent phenomenon call “Greenhouse
